Gunmen Attack Mbieri Police Station In Imo, Kidnap Policeman, Free Suspects by SATANICALLY: 7:53am On Apr 08
Fear continues to pervade the atmosphere in Imo State as gunmen in the early hours of Thursday attacked the Mbieri Divisional Police Headquarters situated in the Mbaitoli Local Government Area of the state.

Our correspondent gathered from an indigene of Mbieri that the fleeing gunmen struck around 1am and immediately released the suspects in custody in the police facility.

The gunmen also took away the phones belonging to suspects and the police operatives at the Division.

But a police source at Division told our correspondent that the gunmen were repelled by the policemen on duty.

The police source said “We resisted them but they overpowered us. They had more sophisticated weapons. They took all the phones they saw, released the suspects when they gained access and vandalised the police building.”

The source confided in our correspondent that the attackers kidnapped one police officer and injured two other cops.

A community leader, Nokey Ebikam, told our correspondent that the police divisional headquarters was not burnt.

According to him, the gunmen didn’t raze the police facility but freed the suspects in detention after vandalising the Division.

Another indigene of the area, Darlington Irobi, confirmed the attack on the police facility to our correspondent.

He also disclosed that the suspects were freed by the rampaging gunmen.

Police spokesperson in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu, confirmed the attack on the police station when he was contacted by The PUNCH on Thursday morning.

He also confirmed that while one police officer was missing, two others where injured owing to the resistance put by the policemen on duty.

Ikeokwu, also confirmed that some suspects detained in the police facility were freed by the attackers.

He, however assured that the police authority in the state had commenced investigation into the attack, immediately.

The PUNCH reports that six Divisional Police Headquarters had been attacked between February and April apart from the state Police Command headquarters and Owerri Correctional Center which were attacked on Monday, respectively, with 1,884 inmates released and over 50 vehicles burnt.

The gunmen also attacked a military base at Ukwuorji on the Owner-Onitsha Expressway, burnt a soldier in a car and razed four other operational vehicles belonging to the military.

The other Police divisions attacked in the state within two months are Obowo, Aboh Mbaise, Ihitte/ Uboma, Isiala Mbano and the Ehime Mbano Divisional Police Headquarters.

What is actually happening?

Is the country heading to a break up?

Why are we having too much blood flow this recent days?

What's really the problem?

It's either Gunmen or bandits or kidnappers or Herdsmen or Boko Haram....

Old news being recycled by Ibadan express road newspaper.

Yorubas rejoice when Igbos are killed by Fulanis and Police daily.

There's a boiling point where a timid dog being flogged with stick will take courage and bite his oppressor.

I grew up as a child seeing Army and Police check points oppressing and pointing machine guns at us daily, it felt like we are at war.

Then the biggest insults is allowing Fulanis to come all the way from North to come kidnap and kill my people like they own Nigeria.

Yoruba and Fulani might be ONE FAMILY according to their supreme leader Tinubu, But Igbo and Fulani CAN NEVER BE ONE. As family, they're allow to take over all Yoruba land and forest, however if they cross to Igbo territory, then the FG is asking for another civil war.

Fulanis and Igbos are different

Difference in religion
Difference in culture
Difference in cuisine
Difference in mannerism
Difference in looks.

I insist that Uzodimma brought this upon himself.

ESN were a sleeping lion in the bush but you invited soldiers on them.

Reap the fruit of your stupidity Uzodimma.

Meanwhile, why haven't we heard of any herdsmen attack anywhere in Imo state state?

Even herdsmen cannot can grin

They too are scared of Unknown Gunmen.

For those foaming in the mouth that the SE is about to become another NE and that Imo is about to become Borno, I say thunder fire you.

Since all these things started, how many civilian casualties have been recorded? None.

Ndigbo place value on life and can never ever started killing innocent citizens.

The message is simple...

Nigerian Armed forces should dismantle thousands of checkpoints in the Southeast. This place is not a war zone.

You mount roadblocks extorting Igbo peasants and being trigger happy by killing anyone who resists giving you #50.

Enough!

Forever!

If there has to be another war, let there be another war.

If we perish, we perish!

The Public cannot help the Police, because the Police are untrustworthy.

Nobody wants to help the police because they think they have the monopoly to be mad men. The IG has a lot of public trust to build with the Police force, this is where decentralizing the Police will pay off.

Let us watch from individual States the kind of madness a man from another state can unleash in another’s if they won’t be dealt with immediately.

We don't want police in Imo state

cpu2006:


See talk grin. You think you can sleep well if there is no police in Imo.

Better go and by Correct Sence

What is the work of the police if they cannot protect Igbos from fulani herdsmen. Most armed robbery attacks in southeast are stopped by ordinary citizens and vigilantes. Robbers are burnt daily in Igbo land. It is even the police that protect the thieves. What is the use of all those police check points in South East apart from extortion of motorists. Those who refuse to roger are shot. Currently, there is no single police on Imo State roads yet no crime activity.

These are the consequences of injustice and inequality..

Proposing the use of the TETFUND donated by taxpayers for the rehabilitation and Foreign education sponsoring of terrorists would definitely not go down well with anyone who truly loves Nigeria.

but the thing is east is not north, and north is not east, and east can not behave like the north, I repeat east can't stoop too low to kill and start a war amongst themselves.

this is the work of people in power.

And you say this in the comfort of your bedroom behind your keypad. The amount of stupidity amongst Nnamdi Cownu's follower's like you is limitless. Tufia.

I don't know why many Ndigbos fell for the brainwashing of that scammer called Kanu but y'all be be resisted with full force.

Breeding urchins and causing chaos in our land in the name of "fighting Fulani" will never be tolerated. What an idiot you are.
