The incident was the fifth such attack within one week in the state.
Last Wednesday, four police officers were killed when gunmen attacked Atani Divisional Police Headquarters in Ogbaru Council Area of the state.
A day after, gunmen also attacked another police facility in Oyi Council area, where one of the gunmen was killed in the attack.
Also, three police officers were injured last Thursday in another attack at a police checkpoint along Ekwulobia expressway in the state.
On Monday, five wedding guests were abducted in Akpo Community, Aguata Local Government Area of the state while they were returning from a traditional marriage ceremony of a cousin to the Anambra State Commissioner for Special Duties, Sly Ezeokenwa.
The police spokesperson in the state, Tochukwu Ikenga, confirmed the latest attack on Anaku police facility, saying it was being investigated.
He said the gunmen attacked the facility with a locally made explosive, but they were repelled by police officers on duty.
Ikenga said no life was lost in the incident and that the police facility was secured.
“The operatives stood firm and engaged the hoodlums which made them flee the scene. The miscreants, in a bid to escape, threw bon fires inside the station and it affected three police operational vehicles,” the Police spokesman said.
