Gunmen suspected to be ESN on Friday night attacked three Police Stations in Rivers State and reportedly shot seven policemen dead.

The Police Public Relations Officer of Rivers State, SP Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the attacks last night, not disclosing the number of casualties and levels of damages to the attacked Police Stations.

In a report by PM News, security sources said that about four policemen were killed by the gunmen at Elimgbu Police Station while at Choba Police Station along East-West road, opposite the University of Port Harcourt, two policemen were killed.

Both stations are in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area, while in the Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State, one policeman was allegedly killed at Rumuji Police Station.

Also, unconfirmed numbers of operational vehicles were reportedly burnt.

Both Choba and Rumuji Police Stations are located along East-West road.

The spate of attacks on Rumuji, Choba and Elimgbu Police Stations are coming on the heels of the 8 pm to 6 am curfew imposed on the axis and entry towns bordering Rivers.

Another curfew was imposed on residents within the state starting from 10 pm to 6 am.
