Gunmen Kill Two Policemen In Checkpoint Attack.

Gunmen have killed two policemen in a checkpoint attack along Presidential road, Enugu.

The development came barely one week after two policemen and three vigilante operatives otherwise known as Neighbourhood Watch Group were killed in another attack by a gang of rampaging hoodlums in Igga community in Uzo-Uwani local government area of Enugu State.

The latest incident, our correspondent gathered, occurred around 9:30 pm on Friday when the officers serving in Ogui Division were conducting stop-and-search along Presidential Road, Enugu.

According to the spokesman of the Enugu Police command, Daniel Ndukwe, the attackers were suspected to be the armed members of the IPOB/ESN who operated in three SUV jeeps.

Ndukwe stated the operatives returned fire, forcing the hoodlums to escape with varying degrees of gunshot wounds and abandoning a recovered Lexus RX 300 jeep.

But Governor Peter Mbah has placed a N10 million bounty on the killers, saying the State would go after the culprits with every resource at its disposal.
