Reports say gunmen have reportedly killed three policemen during an attack on Nsukwa Police Divisional Headquarters, Aniocha South LGA.
It was learnt the attack, which occurred around 2.00am on Sunday, led to collapse of parts of roof of the police station.
As at the time of writing this reports, details of the attack were still sketchy.
The Nation reports that an uneasy calm has enveloped Nsukwa, a small agrarian community, following the attack with residents fleeing to neighbouring communities.
Although identities of the slain policemen have not been declared, sources in the community claimed they include an Inspector, sergeant and a Corporal.
The fate of a lone detainee at the station remains unknown as at press time.
Sources in the community said that there were sporadic shootings that lasted for about one hour.
Delta Police Commissioner, Ari Ali, who declined comment said: “Speak with the police public relations officer”.
Efforts to reach the Delta Command image maker, Bright Edafe, proved abortive as his lines rang out several times.
