Three police facilities were earlier razed at Atta, Izombe and Orji.

Courts were also torched at Atta and a Health Centre was razed in Njaba LGA.

The fresh attack came just 24 hours after a former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak, was killed in the state.

Gulak, who was on his way to the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo airport in Owerri for a flight to Abuja, was gunned down.

Also a senior officer with the Nigerian Immigration service, Okiemute Mrere, was shot dead along the Owerri- Port Harcourt Road- Owerri on Saturday night.

Police Spokesperson in Imo state, Bala Elkana, said he had not been briefed on the latest attack when he was contacted on phone.
