Sunday PUNCH reports that some armed men who are suspected to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, again on Sunday, razed Mkpatak Police Station in Essien Udim Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State and killed two police officers and twelve cows.

Information at our disposal also indicated that there is another attack on a police station in Abak LGA of the state

It was gathered that the burning of the police station at Mkpatak, the killing of the two officers and twelve cows were carried out in coordinated attacks launched in three different locations in the LGA.

All the attacks are coming barely 24 hours after five police officers and a police officer’s wife were killed in an attack on Idoro Ikpe Police Station in Ini LGA on Saturday.

A source who pleaded not to be mentioned told our correspondent in Uyo that the officers were killed in Ukana Ikot Ntuen while the cows were killed at Afaha Ikot Ebak in the same LGA.

According to the source, one of the officers was burnt inside his car while the other officer on a motorcycle was shot by the hoodlums.

“Two police officers have been killed in Ukana Ikot Ntuen and one was burnt inside his vehicle, while the other one was shot by the bandits. As we speak, the situation is still tensed. They killed 12 cows in Afaha Ikot Ebak Village,” the source said.

The Public Public Relations Officer, Odiko Macdon, who confirmed the attacks however said he is yet to get an official report, adding that the police are following the trend.

He said the command has demanded an update which will be made known as soon as it was ready, adding that the Commissioner of Police, Andrew Amiengheme, has ordered the deployment of a tactical team to the affected areas.

“Well, I am yet to get the official report, but we are following the trend and we have asked for an update and in no distance time there will be an update. As soon as we have the update we will let the world know. The CP has ordered the deployment of a tactical team to the affected areas,” Macdon said.
