In connection with the assault on the US Consulate Convoy on Tuesday in the state's Ogbaru Local Government Area, the Anambra Police Command reported that it has detained two individuals.


The US administration made it clear that no Americans were among the victims of the incident, but some domestic staff members of the Embassy were hurt, according to reports.


Mr. Echeng Echeng, the commissioner of police for Anambra State, said a Joint Security Task Force, made up of police tactical teams and soldiers from the Nigerian Army and Navy, stormed the criminals' hideout in the Ugwuaneocha community of the Ogbaru LGA on Thursday.

At the time of the attack, they were traveling in a convoy of two vehicles.
