The police station in Umuoke Obowo was, yesterday, set ablaze by the enraged youth of the town, following the alleged killing of one Ikenna Ogbunigwe by a policeman.

Ogbunigwe was confirmed dead at Mercy Hospital in Umuoke, triggering the youth to transfer heir aggressions on the police station, carting away firearms and other exhibits at the station and releasing detainees.

The DPO also narrowly escaped being mobbed by the mob. The trigger-happy policeman reportedly opened fire on the deceased during a minor argument at a restaurant.
