Suspected Hoodlums have reportedly killed three policemen and set their patrol vehicle on fire when a security post was invaded in Anambra State.
It was learnt the incident occurred around 9am on Sunday along Ukaegbu /Ezeiweka road in Onitsha.
Congress gathered two other persons were injured during the shooting in a security post mounted by the police operatives.
A close source alleged that the attack could be provoked by police extortion at the security post.
According to the source: “Any time they stay there, the residents feel relieved because the place is a dangerous zone. But the way they extort motorists is what people don’t like
“The problem the Policemen have is that they don’t listen or monitor situation. People are angry because of the situation of things in the country and you continue to extort them every day
“Nobody knows the unknown gunmen, many people believe they are members of the Pro -Biafra agitators and the reason all of us should be careful about things we do,” the source lamented.
The police command of Anambra State is yet to release official statement on the incident.
