The Anambra Police Command has confirmed an early morning attack on the Idemili South Local Government Area office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The command also said a police station was attacked by the gunmen in Ojoto.
DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, the command’s public relations officer, confirmed the attack, saying that two casualties were recorded.
He explained, “The hoodlums, who came in their numbers at about 1:45 a.m. today with four unmarked Sienna cars, armed with improvised explosive devices, and petrol bombs, invaded the INEC office, the police station, and a residential building within the station.
“Unfortunately, a 16-year-old relative of a serving police officer in the station was murdered by the armed men, and another 15-year-old girl was shot.”
Meanwhile, Ikenga noted that the injured girl was taken to an undisclosed hospital for treatment.
