Similarly, the police suffered no human casualty, apart from a police Constable who sustained a minor bullet wound on his shoulder.<br><br>Meanwhile, one of the operational vehicles of the attackers has been recovered by the Police and is currently being subjected to forensic scrutiny and investigations.<br><br>The IGP, who condemned the attack on the security outfits, has further directed the Commissioner of Police, Imo State Command and a new Special Investigation Team (specifically set up to deal with cases of incessant attacks on security formation/operatives in the region), to carry out holistic investigations into the incident with a view to fishing-out the perpetrators and bringing them to justice. The CP is to harness the security reinforcement squads and other operational assets at his disposal to take the battle to the door-steps of the attackers and prevent any further attack anywhere within the State and its environs.<br><br>The IGP, who described the deliberate and criminal attack on security operatives as an attack on the soul of our nation, has enjoined leaders in Imo State, the South-East and other parts of the country to speak out against the unfolding violence and criminality. The IGP calls on citizens to avail the Police and other security agencies with useful information that can assist in identifying and arresting the criminals. He vowed that the perpetrators will be brought to book, noting that the Force is doing all within its powers to curb the activities of unscrupulous elements hell-bent on threatening the unity, safety, security and socio-ecomomic wellbeing of Nigerians.<br><br>CP FRANK MBA <br>FORCE PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER FORCE<br>HEADQUARTERS <br>ABUJA</blockquote><br><a rel=ugc href="https://prnigeria.com/2021/04/05/police-ipob-imo-state/">https://prnigeria.com/2021/04/05/police-ipob-imo-state/</a>
