The police station and courts were set on fire between 1 and 2 a.m., according to some community leaders.

According to community accounts, the armed hoodlums shot intermittently for about an hour before setting fire to the town’s government-owned structures.

The tragedy occurred after the inhabitants had gone to bed, according to Remigiius Azike, the community’s Prince.

John Agbaso, a previous president-general of the community, verified the incidence and stated that the community was in anguish as a result of the event.

“It was just a week earlier that the house of the community’s president-general, Chijioke Duruonyeokwu, was set ablaze by unknown people, killing his wife,” he claimed.

He pleaded with the government to help them, noting that insecurity was on the rise in the area.

“I was the one who built the police station and magistrate court, as well as mobilising youths to build the High Court under the auspices of Atta Nwambieri’s Transformations Ambassadors. This was done so that our people might use government facilities. They just razed our president’s house and killed his wife in less than a week. He said, “The government should come to our aid.”

Bala Elkana, the state’s police public relations officer, did not respond to repeated calls and text messages made to him.
