A police station in Imo state has been set ablaze by gunmen, for the second time in two days.

The police station, located in Ehime Mbano LGA, was burnt down on Tuesday afternoon.

This newspaper gathered that the police officers took to their heels when the station was invaded by gunmen.

The gunmen were also said to have freed the detained persons at the police station.
