This was revealed on Sunday by Ebonyi State Commissioner of Police, CP Aliyu Garba, in a text message to The PUNCH.
CP Garba said the hoodlums were killed while arms and ammunition were recovered.
“Not true. Get the real facts of the situation from the PPRO. The police station and the facilities there, including vehicles are intact. The hoodlums were killed. Arms and ammunition were recovered. Take a trip to the scene for confirmation.”
There were reports earlier that gunmen allegedly attacked the Unwana Police Division, in the Afikpo North Local Government Area of the state, in the wee hours of Sunday.
The attackers were also alleged to have killed three policemen on duty; an inspector, and two constables.
The report also said the hoodlums razed operational vehicles parked within the premises of the station, during the alleged attack.
