Senate Chief Whip, Sen. Orji Kalu, has strongly condemned the attack on Uzuakoli Police Station in Bende Local Government Area of Abia State.
Recall that unknown gunmen on Monday morning, reportedly razed down a police station in Uzuakoli, Bende Local Government Area of Abia State.
042BAZE reported that the incident occurred in the early hours of Monday when the assailants invaded the station.
Reacting, kalu in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja, described the attack as “uncivilized and babaric.”
Kalu also stated that the perpetrators must be brought to book while urging security agencies to work collectively to ensure that such attacks do not reoccur.
“I condemn in strong terms the attack on Uzuakoli Police Station in Bende local government area of Abia and the subsequent freeing of detainees from the station.
“The ugly incident is saddening and devastating. The personnel of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) who were attacked are serving the country and as such shouldn’t be molested.
“Such thuggery and violence will never be condoned because it will deter the country from moving forward,”
Kalu, however, appealed to the people of Bende LGA to be calm and peaceful regardless of the current situation.
