What would have been a bloody attack on our security operatives in Enugu State was resisted by the officers on duty in the early hours of today.

Journalist101 gathered that the invaders which attempted to attack Aguobu Owa Divisional Police station in Ezeagu local government area were vehemently resisted by the police operatives.

According to a witness, the gunmen at about 9am on Friday, 8th October, 2021, driving in a black Toyota car tried to attack the station.

During the exchange of fire, a police officer  sustained a bullet wound and is currently receiving treatment in the hospital.

A police source also told JOURNALIST101 that many of the attackers escaped with serious gunshot wounds and their planned attack on the station came to nullity.

When contacted, the command’s Spokesperson, ASP Daniel Ndukwe said: “Full-scale investigation has commenced to fish out the yet-to-be identified hoodlums, who operating in a black-coloured Corolla car, attempted to attack Ezeagu Police Division in the morning hours of today, 08/10/2021, but were resisted by Police Operatives on duty.”
