In the early hours of Tuesday, October 6, two security men, including a vigilante commander named Chinedu Urama, were killed in an attack.
The assailants also set fire to the office and patrol vehicles. Meanwhile, CP Abubakar Lawal, the Enugu State Commissioner of Police, has ordered a complete investigation into the incident, saying that the culprits will not be pardoned.
