Gunmen in the early hours of Tuesday attacked the Iwollo Police Division in Ezeagu Local Government Area of Enugu State and razed the station.
The Commissioner of Police in Enugu State, Mr Mohammed Aliyu, who confirmed the attack in a statement said he was already on ground to ascertain the level of destruction and casualties.
However, an eyewitness, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told newsmen that the hoodlums attacked the division in their large numbers in the wee hours of the day.
The eyewitness said that the attack threw the entire Iwollo community into fear and panic throughout the night.
Recall that on April 21, unknown gunmen shot two police operatives dead during an attack on Adani Police Station in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State.
The station was also set ablaze completely at about 2:30 am.
