The Imo State Police Command has revealed the identities of gunmen who attacked the Mbieri Police Station in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of the state on Friday.

The command’s spokesman, Micheal Abattam, who spoke with newsmen in Owerri on Saturday, said Solomon Umunakwu and Uzoma Umunakwe, both natives of Mbieri in Mbaitoli LGA, are parts of those who masterminded the attack.

Others who were part of the attacks include, Kelechi Onuoma aka Ikaba and Kelvin Onuoma aka Alabalaba, both natives of Atta in Njaba LGA of Imo State.

The spokesman also revealed that officers of the command also uncovered the hideout of other gang members in Njaba local government.

He added that “On searching the hideouts the following items were recovered; three locally made pistols, one cut to size gun, one Beretta pistol number NAF-P 3296, one dagger, four rounds of live cartridges, two police belts, one Eastern Security Network uniform, one black beret, one army camouflage scarf, two big sacks of weeds suspected to be Indian hemp and one iron saw blade. Meanwhile, the police operatives are on an aggressive manhunt for the fleeing hoodlums.”
