Some unknown have invaded a neighborhood security office in Anambra state, killing five people including a security officer on duty and a famous business tycoon in the area.
The gunmen reportedly attacked the local vigilance office in Ozubulu, Ekwusigo LGA of the state, about 7 pm on Sunday evening, and set the building and vehicles of the local security group on fire.
Confirming the incident, the police command spokesperson, Ikenga Tochukwu said “Yes, there was an attack on Ozubulu but not the police station but vigilante office by the hoodlums,”
“They came in Sienna vehicles, motorcycles and attacked the office of the vigilante. Security operatives have been deployed to the area and normalcy has been restored.” Tochukwu said.
Military personnel have been stationed in the town to guarantee adequate protection.
In recent months, attacks on police stations and patrol units in the state have been occurring incessantly.
