The police in Anambra state engaged in a gun battle with unknown gunmen who have been alleged to be IPOB members. The attack reportedly led to the death of four gallant officers of the force.

Spokesman for the Anambra State Police Command, Tochukwu Ikenga who alleged that the attack was carried out by suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), told Channels Television that the police battled the assailants and warded them off.

Eyewitness also alleged that the gun duel with the assailants who came to the police facility in seven vehicles, lasted for more than one hour as residents in the area scampered to safety.

Another source told Channels Television that the gunmen overpowered the security operatives and carted away some of their arms. According to the news channel, by the time a reinforcement from the Nigerian Navy arrived, the gunmen had left.

The attack is believed to be a reprisal for the killing of two suspected members of the proscribed group on Sunday morning, August 8.
