The device detonated in the division’s administrative office, the Divisional Police Officer’s office, and the administrative desk.
However, the Imo Police Command claimed its tactical squad resisted the onslaught and forced the gunmen to flee into the woods in a quick response.
Mike Abattam (CSP), the command’s spokesperson, claimed in a press statement that no lives were lost and that the bombs caused very minor damage.
“On 06/01/2022 at about 0230 hours, at Ideato South Police Station, some unknown gunmen came in their numbers, shooting sporadically, and threw an Improvised Explosive Devices (I.E.D) into the station.
“The hoodlums were immediately repelled by the command’s tactical team and the police operatives of the division and in the ensuing gun duel, the hoodlums were overwhelmed by the superior fire-power of the police.
“However, no life or arms was lost and the detonated (I.E.D) only caused minimal damage.”
