Imo Court Attacked By Gunmen, Sensitive Documents Burnt
Reports say the gunmen also burnt sensitive documents in the court complex housing both the high court and a magistrates’ court.

A clerical worker, who refused to be named said, “All the sensitive files in the building were burnt.”
On his part, the Orlu Branch Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association, Barnabas Munonye, while speaking on the development, confirmed the attack and described it as “unfortunate.”
He said that his attention was drawn to the incident by the administrative secretary of the association early Saturday morning.
Also reacting, the Imo State Police Command, through its Spokesman, Mike Abattam also confirmed the attack.
Abattam said the command had launched an investigation into the incident.
