Over the weekend, Anambra State Police Command Operatives, successfully repelled yet to be identified hoodlums who attempted to attack and possibly burn down an outpost in the state.
Tochukwu Ikenga, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, of the Command, , revealed this in a press statement in Awka. He said that the police operatives stood their ground and warded off the unwarranted attack on Mgbakwu Police Outpost, Awka North Council Area, in the early hours of Sunday.
He revealed that the hoodlums were armed with guns and dangerous weapons and had actually attempted to set the station ablaze before they were repelled by the personnel on duty.
The Commissioner of Police, M.B Kuryas, has assured Anambra citizens that the command is not deterred by the criminal actions of some unscrupulous individuals and groups hell-bent on wrecking havoc and unleashing violence and mayhem in the state.
He emphasized that the command will not relent in its commitment towards delivering on its mandate of ensuring that peace, safety and order reign supreme in all nooks and crannies of Anambra State.
The CP, however, warned the criminals not to further test the resolve and ability of the police and other security agencies in the state to apprehend and bring them to book.
