Punch quoted a source saying, “there is shooting at Gariki, MTD area and that two policemen and some other persons have been killed” on Thursday morning.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of Enugu command, Daniel Ndukwe, who confirmed the incident in a statement, said the operatives were on stop-and-search when they were attacked.

He said; ”There was an attack on Policemen on stop and search duty this morning, along Agbani Road, close to Enugu/Port-Harcourt Expressway, by yet-to-be-identified hoodlums.

“However, details of the incident are still sketchy, while Command’s Tactical/Operational Operatives have been mobilized and are on the trail of the miscreants. Further development will be communicated, please.”

The statement was silent on the number of casualties, but sources in the area confirmed that at least two policemen were feared killed during the attack.

KanyiDaily had recently reported how the police killed two gunmen enforcing sit-at-home along the Umunze Road, Orumba South Local Government Area of Anambra state.
