Gunmen attack, bomb police divisional headquarters in Anambra



The Ihiala police divisional headquarters in Anambra state was attacked on Wednesday by gunmen.

Mr Ikenga assured that security operations were still ongoing in the area, promising that further details would be communicated to the public.
