Gunmen in the early hours of Monday set ablaze the Uzuakoli Police Station located on Umuahia-Uzuakoli-Ohafia highway.
The gunmen in their numbers shot their way into the police station and subsequently vandalised it.
The attack is coming weeks after a similar incident was unleashed in World Bank Housing Estate, Aba, when a police station was razed and property worth millions of naira destroyed.
The state government had alerted the public last week of a planned attack on public facilities and urged the people to be vigilant.
Kalu also called on security agencies to work collectively in averting any recurrence.
Kalu said: “I condemn in strong terms the attack on Uzuakoli Police Station in Bende local government area of Abia and the subsequent freeing of detainees from the station.
`The ugly incident is saddening and devastating.
Kalu appealed to the people of Bende LGA to be calm and peaceful. (NAN)
