At least three police officers have been severely injured after gunmen attacked the police headquarters in Akwa Ibom State.
This was disclosed on Sunday by the spokesman of the police command in the state, SP Odiko MacDon in Udung Uko
He said, “Gunmen on Saturday night attacked the Divisional Police Headquarters in Udung Uko Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom.
“At least three officers sustained fatal injuries, resulting from heavy gunshots as policemen on duty tried to repel the attack.”
MacDon, however, commended the officers on duty for their gallantry, noting that the situation would have been worse but for the policemen on duty who repelled the attack.
He said that the officers who sustained gunshot wounds are currently receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital in the state.
