At least two policemen attached to the New Haven Police Station have been killed by unknown gunmen while on a stop and search duty at Nze Street bypass, New Haven Enugu. The incident occurred around 9pm on Thursday, leaving passersby and residents jittery.
A security source told Sunday Vanguard that the gunmen stormed the check point with two vehicles, killed two policemen and went away with their rifles.
“We are working tirelessly to unravel the identities of the gunmen,” Police Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed the incident.
“The policemen were killed while on duty. The gunmen were about five or so. We are suspecting that they were armed robbers. Cultists usually do not act this way. We are appealing to members of the public to avail us of credible information that will unmask the identity of the killers,” he said.
