Owerri Prison Attack: They Threw Explosives At Us ― Police Officer by Humblechuks002(m): 4:05pm On Apr 05
By Chinonso Alozie – Owerri

The hoodlums who attacked the Owerri Prison Facility and freed thousands of inmates in, early hours of Monday, have been said to have attacked the Imo State police headquarters in Owerri, with an explosive substance.

Vanguard in Owerri visited the police command where a police officer on duty when it occurred revealed this to
Vanguard.

The police officer who said he would not want his name mentioned said that “They were over two hundred boys, with their cars singing a song of victory and when they reach the gate of our police headquarters they threw dynamite at us and the thing exploded and the vehicles caught fire especially the vehicle park.

“I jumped over the fence because they are many. When they started shooting bullets it got one of my colleagues in his hand and he fell down.”


Also when Vanguard moved towards the government house roundabout, two vehicles were also set ablaze by the hoodlums which burnt beyond recognition.

There was no shooting last night, infact those bullets were not life bullets. The gunmen shot in d air to scare away the police forces and no casualty was recorded last night
The family of the victims should come out and testify

Motherfucking cowards, why not fight them.
They were armed and you were armed but you ran away like cowards that you are instead of you to fight back.
A whole Police Headquarters was attacked and you cowards could not make any attempt to repel the attack, if it was unarmed civilians y'all will be flexing muscles, now you have met your match you are running around like sissies.

If your papa na Police and he has killed innocent people before by the grace of God he will be killed during one of these attacks by those "unknown gunmen".
Iseee!

Considering how close that headquarters is to the govt house, these guys could have overrun the govt house and taken the Gov if they wanted. That is how much Nigeria has degenerated

Hmm, but no death casualties...
My advice to the people in SE, They’d be a likely surge of violence by official and unofficial terrorists... The only response would be fight back and be labeled an ESN terrorist(which might also warrant death) or sit back and be killed by official and unofficial terrorists.

Who benefits from the Owerri prison break that freed kidnappers, armed robbers rapists and all other dangerous criminals?


Jman06:
I pity some of you who are foolishly showing support to the insecurity currently brewing in the southeast! Some Hausa people acted in that manner when boko haram were still new in the north. Some of them today are no more!

I support anything done to ensure that Fulani herdsmen stop taking people's farmlands and all that, but we must watch it! Yorubas fought these same herders without having to break prisons to unleash hardened criminals on their people! There was also no reports of them killing any military or police personnel. They knew and picked their targets carefully!

Here we are, opening up prisons and attacking police stations while releasing hardened criminals to our people. Nnamdi Kanu even hailed the actions of these unknown gun men. I hope he understands the implication of what he's doing
It is always good and refreshing to see we still have reasonable and sensible youths like you on this forum.
Truth is bitter , both let us continue to say it.
Dem no dey telli person.

AntiWailer:
No they should av opened fire so u shout Massacre.
Confused citizens
U sef talk am!
When we call them hypocrites, they will start wailing and crying.

The same children of hate, frustrations and perdition crying about the imaginary 100 or 78 deaths at Lekki are still the same people asking while didn't the police shoot the gunmen dead, why are there no casualties, why don't we have any dead bodies?
That is how hatred make some people go mad just laidat. cheesy
