Gunmen have attacked a dividional police headquarters in Adani, in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State on Wednesday.

This is raising fresh and grave concern over the occurring attacks on police formations in the South - East, which have increased both in scope and intensity in the last couple of days.

Barely 24 hours earlier, a Police Zonal Headquarters, Zone 13 in Ukpo, Anambra State was attacked, two police operatives were wounded while buildings and vehicles were also razed by the gunmen who deployed both petrol bombs and Improvised Explosive Devices in the about 35 - minute assault on the police facilities in Ukpo.

In the latest attack in Adani Divisional Headquarters, Enugu this morning, The Daily Crucible learnt that three policemen were feared dead following severe gunshot wounds inflicted on them by the attackers.

It was learnt that the three officers were on duty at the time the gunmen struck and received the first wave of the gun assaults. 

A number of others were also injured during the predawn attack.

In like pattern, the attackers set security infrastructure in the division ablaze.

Although, the Enugu Police Command is aware of the assault, it was gatheted, but working to get full details of the incident before making formal information about it available to the public.

However, our reporter has been trying to reach the State Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, on phone without success but will not give up.
