Ndatsu Aliyu, Enugu commissioner of police (CP), has ordered the immediate deployment of a special team to identify and apprehend the gunmen responsible for the attack on Adani police station.

This was disclosed in a statement on Wednesday by Daniel Ndukwe, spokesman of the Enugu police command.

TheCable had reported how gunmen attacked Adani divisional police station in Uzo-Uwani LGA of Enugu state at about 2:30am on Wednesday.

Two police officers were said to have died during the attack, while the station was razed.


According to Ndukwe, the CP gave the deployment order during an assessment visit to the police station on Wednesday.

“The Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Command, CP Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu, psc, has ordered the immediate deployment of the Command’s operational and intelligence assets to identify and apprehend the yet-to-be-identified gunmen, who without warrant and provocation, violently attacked and set ablaze Adani Police Station today, 21st April, 2021 at about 2.30am,” the statement reads.

“He gave this order during a prompt on-the-spot assessment visit of the station, alongside heads of sister security agencies in the state.”


The spokesman noted that the police operatives on duty had resisted the attack and engaged the attackers in a gun duel, which lead to the death of two officers.

He added that the commissioner commiserated with families of the deceased officers, and urged residents to provide the police with valuable information to identify the assailants.

“He further urges residents of the state, especially owners of medical facilities, to promptly report to the police anyone suspected to have gunshot injuries,” Ndukwe added.
