Report just coming in to IgbereTV newsroom from Cross River State indicates that gunmen, yet to be identified, have attacked another police station in the state.

According to Daily Post, the assault happened in Ekori in the Yahuu Local Government Area of the state,

An eyewitness, who spoke on condition of anonymity alleged that the gunmen took away one AK-47 after beating up policemen on duty.

β€œThe hoodlums invaded the Police Station located at Ekori community of Yakurr with heavy weapons and attacked the officers,” the witness alleged.

According to him, the hoodlums scared away the officers on duty, beat one to pulp and got away with the AK-47 rifle of the policeman.

It was learnt that the attack led to the closure of the Ekori Police Station indefinitely and officers ordered to move to Ugep Divisional Police, at the local government headquarters.

This is the third time that officers of the Nigeria Police Force have suffered attacks within two months in Cross River State.

The first attack was at a checkpoint located at Idundu Road by Goodluck Ebele Jonathan bypass in Calabar where four police officers were killed.

When contacted on Monday via phone, the Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Igri Ewa, confirmed the incident, saying investigations on the matter were ongoing but noted that the Command would soon issue a statement on that.
