Written by on April 11, 2024

Gunmen, on Thursday, attacked a police checkpoint along the Abakaliki-Enugu Highway and set a police patrol van belonging on fire.

Our correspondent gathered that the incident happened at the Ishieke Junction on the outskirts of Abakaliki metropolis.

Gunmen killed one policeman and abducted another, but this could not be independently verified as of the time of filing this report.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Joshua Ukandu, confirmed the attack.

He, however, denied knowledge of the killing or abduction of any police officer saying reports from the scene were still sketchy.

He said, “An incident happened this morning, but I am still trying to put the details.

“At this point, I can’t confirm much. Let me get my facts right.

“I just got information that there was an attack at that point, but I don’t have any other information.”\
