A Police Station in Ajali, Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State, was set on fire by some unknown people, on Thursday.
The perpetrators, according to Punch newspaper, may be affiliated with the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), because they chanted ‘No Election in Biafra Land’, while attacking the station.
They were also said to have beaten officers on duty and freed detainees, before setting the station ablaze.
However, a statement by Haruna Mohammed, Anambra Police Public Relations Officer, said it was “a case of fire incident”.
He said: “This is a case of fire incident for now, until the contrary is proved through discreet investigation. The Commissioner of Police, Mustapha Dandaura, is presently at the scene for an on-the-spot assessment.
“He has ordered the Deputy Commissioner in charge of the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department to conduct a thorough investigation in order to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the incident.”
