Gunmen have killed at least four police officers after an attack on police stations in Nigeria’s south-east in Enugu State.

In neighboring Ebonyi state, another police officer died after a hand grenade strapped on his belt accidentally detonated.

So far around 20 police officers have been killed in the latest wave of violence sweeping across the south-eastern region with attacks being reported in three states on Tuesday.

Reports say the gunmen have been attacking security forces and government facilities.

According to police authorities an armed gang burnt down a police station in Enugu State.

A deadly shootout was also reported between the police and gunmen in Imo state. The attackers were said to have attempted to attack a police station there.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks but a proscribed separatist group demanding an independent state has been active in the area.

Last month, state governors in the region announced the setting up of a joint security force to coordinate security activities in the area.
