Enugu Metro has opened a diary of attacks on south-east region police stations by unknown gunment since January 2021.
Although the attacks began from Enugu State in August 2020, as we previously reported, their scale and tempo have significantly increased.
The attacks touched Police, prisons and military stations in all the five States of the region, forcing citizens to ask governments in the region to convene a security summit to deal with the problem.
The table will continue to be updated, so visit here often to see the latest statistics.
