A day after gunmen attacked the Police Command Headquarters in Owerri, Imo State, a group of armed men invaded another police facility in the state on Tuesday.

Sources said the gunmen, who came in buses and in a large number, arrived at the police station and freed all the suspects in detention before setting the building ablaze.
