Another police station in Abia state, southeast Nigeria, has been attacked by unknown gunmen.
The Nation reported that the attack on Apumiri Ubakala Police Station occurred in the early hours of Monday, May 17, 2021.
The publication stated that the police station located off the ever-busy Ubakala-Old Umuahia road was set ablaze.
The Punch reported that no causality has been recorded as the state police command had yet to react to the incident.
A source told the Daily Trust that the police command received intelligence of an impending attack before the incident.
Onochie said in other countries like Congo and the United States where security agents were recently attacked, the assailants have been brought to book.
She recalled that in the instance of the African nation, not less than 30 persons have already been sentenced to death, while some persons suspected to have been involved in the US Capitol Hill invasion are now pleading guilty.
Onochie questioned why no arrest has been made over Nigerian police personnel who were murdered back in late 2020.
