Nigerian Police Launches Manhunt For Killers Of 5 Police Officers And A Couple

The Police Command in Imo has begun a manhunt for the killers of five police officers and a couple at Okpala, in the Ngor-Okpala Local Government Area of the state on Friday morning.

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Henry Okoye, who confirmed the incident, said the command’s Tactical and Operational Teams had been deployed to the area.
He noted that the command was on the trail of the suspects, and said security had been beefed up in the area to increase public confidence.

“The command has deployed tactical and operational teams to the area for constant patrol and in search of those behind this dastardly act.
He said that corpses of the operatives have been evacuated and deposited in a morgue and urged members of the public to go about their lawful businesses without fear.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the gunmen opened fire on five policemen who went to eat at a local restaurant.
An eyewitness said the gunmen took the riffles of the officers, after shattering the police white Hilux van with bullets.

The source noted that a couple, identified as Mr and Mrs Chinaka Nwagu, who owned a shop beside the scene of the crime, lost their lives during the attack.

“Three of the policemen were killed inside the restaurant, while two others ran to a nearby shop but the gunmen ran after them to the shop, killing them and the couple at the same time, the source noted.

  1. Oh my goodness!!! Innocent lives wasted just like that. I pray the killers are apprehended. May the souls of the dead rest in peace.

  2. I don't feel pity for policemen when they kill them, their atrocities are too much. I only feel for the innocent couple, may their souls rest in peace.

    1. Same here.
      They kill innocent people, frame people and send them to jail. They are used by politicians and rich men to victimize and brutalise people, etc. their atrocities are too numerous to count
      Police? Tufiakwa!

  3. South East now is known as Wild Wild East. My condolences to the bereaved families.
