Unknown gunmen, on Sunday, set ablaze an operational base of the Department of State Services (DSS), in Nnewi, Anambra State.
It was reported that the gunmen stormed the building in a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV).
In a video of the incident on social media, the gunmen could be seen parading the building and later drove away from the scene.
However, Ikenga Tochukwu, Anambra police command spokesperson, he said he is only of case of fire incidents in some parts of Nnewi.
Tochukwu said he has not received further details about the buildings affected in the fire incident.
“At about 2pm, today, the command received a distress call of a fire incident in Nnewi. The police operatives are currently on ground there and the areas have been cordoned off,” he said.
But TheCable reports that the house of Chu Okongwu, an economist and one-time minister of finance, was also set ablaze in the state.
The DSS has not responded to the incident.
The incident comes on the heels of recent spate of violent attacks and killings in the state.
