He said, “On the 23rd October, 2020, between 8:30am and 6:30pm, hoodlums in large numbers under the guise of “#EndSARS” protesters attacked Amichi, Osumeyi, Ezinifite and Ukpor Divisions all under Nnewi South LGA of Anambra State.

The suspects also attacked Oraifite Area Command/ Division, vandalized and set the facilities ablaze carting away exhibits but NOT Arms and ammunition.

Meanwhile, the DPO Osumenyi Division and two others were fatally wounded during the attack. The injured Police officers were rushed to the hospital for medical attention after which the DPO and the Station officer Osumenyi were confirmed dead by the Medical Doctor while the other Police Constable is responding to treatment. Their corpses were photographed and deposited at the morgue for autopsy. 

Consequently, the hoodlums equally torched part of Awgbu Division but were later repelled by the Police in collaboration with members of the communities.

However, six suspects were arrested in connection with the recent attack on 3-3 Police Station and effort is being intensified to arrest other fleeing perpetrators in order to bring them to book.

The Commissioner of Police, CP John B. Abang, fdc, appreciated the cooperation of some patriotic members of the public and urged them not to relent in their efforts during this trying  period in order to restore lasting peace in the State.

The public are equally enjoined to report any distress through the State Command’s emergency number 07039194332 for prompt action.
