UNKNOWN gunmen have stormed the premises of the Anambra State Broadcasting Services (ABS), Awada, Onitsha Station in the early hours of Monday, set a building, a company bus, and another vehicle parked on the premises that belonged to a worker ablaze.
No life was lost in the attack, but the gunmen were said to have brutalised the employees they met on the premises and inflicted injuries on them.
As of the time of filing this report, a worker who begged for anonymity noted that security agents were interrogating them over the attack.
He, however, promised to give full detail of the attack on them by the gunmen, as he had worked all night and witnessed the attack.
Anambra Broadcasting Service, a state government-owned company, has been supporting the state government in its fight against rampaging gunmen.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr Tochukwu Ikenga confirmed that there was a gun battle between policemen of some hoodlums, which led to the wounding of one of the policemen.
