The Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Muhammad Dingyadi, has condemned the attack on the Zone 13 Headquarters of the Nigeria Police Force in Ukpo, Anambra.
The Press Secretary to the Minister, Mr Osaigbovo Ehisienmen, said in a statement on Monday in Abuja
The Minister, however, commended the Police for repelling the attack, leading to the recovery of one general purpose machine gun used by the hoodlums.
He described the incident as an act of terrorism and pledged to ensure intelligence led kinetic operations in the South-East.
Dingyadi said the idea was to flush out illicit weapons and neutralise persons with penchants for terrorism and violent crime, threatening peace and stability in the region.
He enjoined residents to deepen their partnership with the police by exposing enemies of peace and security to arrest the wave of criminality. (NAN)
