BOMADI—UNIDENTIFIED gunmen, in the early hours of Saturday, opened fire on a team of policemen along the Kpakiama community area of the Bomadi/Ohoror Road in Bomadi Local Government Area of Delta State, killing one of them on the spot.
It is not clear if the gunmen went away with the rifle of the late policeman, a corporal.
Sources disclosed that his colleagues were also beaten by the gunmen in what was described as an ambush.
Though efforts to speak with Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, were fruitless at press time, a senior police officer at the Ughelli Area Command confirmed the incident to Vanguard.
The Police source, who does not want his name on print, said: “It is an unfortunate incident and the officer in question is a Corporal.
“Policemen in the area, in partnership with other sister-security agencies, have launched a dragnet in search of the gunmen.”
