Police sources told Daily Trust that an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) and a Police Corporal were killed in the attack.
The attackers reportedly broke into a store where arms were kept and carted them away.
The Police have restricted movements around the burnt station, compounding the traffic woes of residents of the estate.
SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, Police Public Relations Officer in the State, neither responded to calls nor reply the text messages sent to him over the development which comes a few weeks after a mob burnt down Omoba Police Station in Isiala-Ngwa South Local Government Area of Abia.
Burning of police stations was one of the fall out of the October #EndSARS crisis.
Over 20 stations were burnt and 22 officers were killed during the #EndSARS crisis, according to police authorities. (Daily Trust)
