BREAKING; Three Policemen killed in front of Police Station
Unknown gunmen opened fire at a checkpoint in Ebonyi, killing no fewer than three policemen on Monday night.
Sources said the three policemen were killed while on duty at a checkpont in front of a police station along the Enugu-Abakaliki highway on Monday.
It was gathered that the gunmen were in a hummer bus, which the policemen may have mistaken for a commercial vehicle.
“The remains of the three police victims have been deposited at a mortuary in Abakaliki after they were confirmed dead by doctors,” an eyewitness said
It will be recalled that at least 10 policemen were killed in Enugu in two different attacks by gunmen who stormed checkpoints last week.
Police spokesperson, Loveth Odah, confirmed the incident, but said she cannot give details of casualty figures until after a visit to the scene of the incident.
