The policemen attached to The divisional headquarters in Aguobu-Owa community in Ezeagu local government area of Enugu State put up what could perhaps be termed their best defensive performance till date to repel a viciously executed attack by Unknown Gunmen.
The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, who confirmed the incident to NAN in Enugu, said the incident took place in the morning hours of October 8.
A police officer was said to have sustained a bullet wound and was rushed to an undisclosed hospital during the gun duel between the police and gunmen.
“Full scale investigation has commenced to fish out the yet-to-be identified hoodlums, who operating in a black-coloured Corolla car, attacked Ezeagu Police Divisional Headquarters.
“The hoodlums were gallantly resisted by police operatives on duty.
However, a policeman, who sustained gunshot injury, was rushed to the hospital and he is responding to treatment,” he said.
Some of the assailants that were hit during the operation escaped with gunshot wounds and are being trailed by the police.
