At least one gunman has been killed as security operatives foiled an attack on Imo State Police Command Headquarters and other institutions in Owerri on Sunday morning.

SaharaReporters gathered that the development caused panic in Owerri as repeated gunshots rent the air.

While security operatives took over almost all the streets and roads in the state capital, residents who were on their way for early morning church services ran halter-skelter.

Dozens of security officials have been killed in the South-East and South-South regions of Nigeria in recent attacks on security officials and facilities.
