Unknown gunmen have reportedly set another police station in Imo State ablaze.

This is coming a day after the police headquarters in the state was burnt down with detainees freed. During the Monday attack, a correctional facility near the government house was also touched, freeing thousands of inmates.

According to The Nation, the latest attack is on Ehime Mbano Local Government Area Divisional Police Headquarters.

The attack occurred hours after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who visited the state for on-spot assessment on the facilities razed down on Monday.
