There was tension on Sunday in Okpanam, Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State where unknown gunmen allegedly attacked a police station, killing three officers.
Community sources said the hoodlums came in their numbers and overwhelmed operatives at the station.
But authorities of the state police command said the hoodlums did not attack the station.

“The command has been able to arrest one of the suspects who is helping us with useful information.
“I want to use this opportunity to call on members of the public with useful information to avail us with it.
