Gunmen Who Killed Two Police Officers In Ebonyi Arrested

By Tony Adibe

The Ebonyi State Police Command has said that two suspected miscreants in the guise of the proscribed Eastern Security Network (ESN) who invaded the Ebonyi Divisional Police Headquarter, Ugbodo and opened fire on the police personnel on duty, killing an Inspector and a Sergeant have been arrested.

In a release signed by the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Chris Anyanwu said that the attack happened on the 22nd of May 2021 at about 12noon.

Anyanwu said that ever since then, the operatives of the Command’s Tactical teams have been on the trail of the miscreants, adding that from credible information, the hoodlums were intercepted along Ishieke Road in a yellow mini-bus without a registration number.

He said that on sighting the police team, the hoodlums opened fire on them but men of the command in a swift response demobilized their vehicle and in the midst of a stampede that ensued, some of the hoodlums fled while two were arrested.
