Two policemen were killed as gunmen attacked Obosi police station in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The attack was carried out on Wednesday night.
They also set free all detainees in the cell and razed down the police station.
The incident is the latest in what appears to be a growing trend of attacks on police stations and security personnel in the South-East region of the country.
The governors in the region recently announced the set-up of a joint security outfit, codenamed ‘Ebube Agu’ to battle rising insecurity.
