…as Army, Navy, Police commence joint operations
The Anambra State Police Command Sunday foiled an attempt by hoodlums to burn down the Mgbakwu Police Station in Awka North Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The incident, which would have been the fourth attack on police formations and officers and men in less than three weeks, failed due to the prompt response of the Command, though no arrest was made.
