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 who is a corporal, sources in the area disclosed that his colleagues were also beaten by the gunmen in what was described as an ambush on them.
Though efforts to speak with the 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 when contacted.
The police source who does not want his name on print, said: “Yes, it is an unfortunate incident and the officer in question is a Police Corporal. Policemen in the area in partnership with other sister security agencies have launched a dragnet in the area in search of the gunmen.”
