It was gathered that the incident happened on Saturday morning when the gunmen stormed the checkpoint which is close to the Agbani police station around 8am and shot the three policemen dead at close range.

According to Punch, a source said the attack appeared as if the gunmen were already somewhere monitoring their activities before striking.

However, a resident of the area who witnessed the attack, said, “The policemen were caught unaware because they were busy extorting Okada riders when the gunmen swooped on them.

“If you see what they do here, you won’t pity them. How can you be at a checkpoint in an area that has witnessed several attacks and you will relax and be collecting money and giving change to Okada riders. 

“Unfortunately, these criminals took advantage and attacked them. They shot three dead and three others escaped with some gun shots. The hoodlums carted away their guns and took Ugboka – Nara Unateze road and escaped.”

Meanwhile, the Enugu State Police Command has not reacted to the attack.

KanyiDaily had also reported that gunmen killed two members of Ebubeagu security operatives at along Ogbaga road in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.
