The injured policeman is currently receiving treatment at the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital Abakaliki.

Vanguard gathered that the attack on the police station was not totally successful as the gunmen failed to gain full access into the station.

Several Police stations and Divisions in Ebonyi State have in recent time been under attack by gunmen.

The State Commissioner of Police and the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO DSP Loveth Odah could not be reached as at the time of filling in this report.
