According to him ” Yes I can confirm to that the Nworieubi Police Division was set on fire this afternoon by hoodlums.

‘No arrest has been made yet, but police authorities have opened investigation into the matter,” he said.

Governor Hope Uzodinma had on Tuesday ordered a 24-hour curfew in Imo to end the ongoing protest in the state.

The reason for the curfew, according to him, was to arrest the situation in order to avoid loss of lives and properties.

The state’s Fire Service was mobilised by the state government to quench the fire.
