Police Inspector shot dead inside police station in Imo state A police inspector has been killed by gunmen who attacked Mgbidi Divisional Police Headquarters in Imo State. The gunmen reportedly carried out the attack in the late hours of Friday January 14. The state police spokesperson,  Michael Abattam confirmed the attack but said the gunmen were repelled.  It was also gathered that another police officer sustained a minor bullet injury on his hand. Residents of the state have been asked to report any person seen treating bullet wounds or hiding within the community to the nearest police station for prompt action. The statement read;  “On 14th January, 2022 at about 20:45 hours, the Command’s Tactical teams at Mgbidi Police Station repelled an attack by some hoodlums who came in a white hilux vehicle shooting sporadically, attempted to gain entrance into the station but were repelled by the ever gallant Imo Command’s Tactical teams and the police operatives of the division who positioned themselves professionally.“They engaged the hoodlums in a gun duel. In the process, the attackers were suppressed almost immediately, having suffered a huge defeat, with a number of them sustaining various degrees of bullet wounds, they retreated and escaped in the Toyota Hilux vehicle they came with. And were given a hot chase by the police operatives.“Consequently, a vigorous and aggressive manhunt of the hoodlums is ongoing with the sole aim of tracking and arresting the fleeing hoodlums since they cannot go far because of the huge damage done to them.“However, in the course of the attack, a police Inspector lost his life, while another sustained minor bullet injury on his hand.“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police CP Rabiu Hussaini, commended the officers and men for their gallantry and urged them not to relent in their efforts until all criminal elements and their partners are apprehended and made to face the full wrath of the law.“He then appealed to Imolites for the continuous support and collaboration by giving security agencies especially the Police, credible and timely information and to report any person seen treating bullet wounds or hiding within the community to the nearest police station for prompt action.”The post Police Inspector shot dead inside police station in Imo state appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
