A source who lives close to the station told SaharaReporters that he heard gunshots around 1 am.
"Around 1 am, we could hear gunshots. Initially, we thought the policemen at the station were the ones shooting because sometimes they shoot to scare potential assailants.
"By daybreak, we heard it was an attack and that a policeman was killed," the source said.
The identity of the policeman could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report.
The spokesman for the Abia State Police Command, Geoffrey Ogbonna could not be reached on his mobile line as he did not answer calls to his phone nor reply to the text sent to him.
