Eyewitness account said the hoodlums set the station on fire at about 11pm on Wednesday.
Ogbonna said the operatives were shot in the leg and that the attackers also burnt down the generator house and a multi-purpose building, belonging to Bende Local Government.
He said the hoodlums later released criminal suspects, who were detained at the station.
“They also burnt two vehicles, including the Divisional Police Officer’s Highlander Jeep, and three motorcycles, parked at the station,” he said.
Ogbonna said that it was not clear how the bandits arrived at the place in their numbers.
“We do not know yet how they all gathered to execute the attack at the station.
“May be they parked their vehicles away from their target and walked through footpaths to the place,” he said.
He said the command had embarked on full investigations into the incident and other recent gunmen attacks in different parts of the state.
The attack happened barely six hours after Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu left the council premises, venue of the reception of a former legislator, Nnenna Ukeje, back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The violent attacks have left many operatives dead with many others sustaining gunshot wounds. (NAN)
