Meanwhile, the police spokesman in the state, Mike Abattam, said the Acting Commissioner of Police, Mamman Giwa, has launched an investigation into the matter. The commissioner, he said, has drafted the command’s tactical team to the area to prevent any further breakdown of law and order.

Sunday’s incident comes about two days after the home of the Imo State Commissioner for Labour, Employment, and Productivity, Ford Ozumba, was razed in the same local government.
