Shootings between suspected gunmen and police at the Nnewi Police Area Command erupted on Monday afternoon, causing pandemonium amongst the residents of Nnewi community.
It was gathered that the gunmen came in about seven vehicles to the police station and started shooting, which lasted over one hour.
A witness, who would not like his name mentioned in print, said the gunmen overpowered the police and carted away their arms. He said by the time a reinforcement from the Navy arrived, the attackers had left, even though it was gathered that they were pursued to no avail.
When contacted, the police spokesman, Anambra State Command, Mr Tochukwu Ikenga, said his office had not received the report.
