A pregnant policewoman and the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), were among the victims gunned down when some armed gunmen stormed a police station on Tuesday night stormed Afuze, in Owan East local government area of Edo State.

The gunmen, said to have stormed the station at about 8p.m., reportedly announced their arrival for the attack by launching Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) on the station and made away with ammunition, while destroying several vehicles parked at the station.

The hoodlums numbering about 10, were said to have shot sporadically at anybody in sight, including the police personnel, while freeing some inmates in the various cells at the station, ThisDay, reports..

A local resident who spoke to ThisDay last night said the gunmen, who were about 10 in number, arrived the station at about 8p.m., shooting sporadically before killing the officers. 

The eyewitness further disclosed that the attack lasted for over 30 minutes, with the gunmen freely detonating their IEDs before gaining access to the armoury where they carted away weapons. 

It was also gathered that after the attack at the police station, they went to the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the local government where they destroyed police vehicles parked at the premises.

“We suddenly started hearing sounds of gunshots and explosions at the police station. The gunmen caught the policemen unaware.

“We were all afraid to come out. By the gunshots died down, we heard that the DPO and four officers were killed. This is strange to us here. We have never experienced such an attack in this town,” he said.
