‘We call on the public who might have any useful information to inform any nearby police station, just happened around 9.00 am today, Tuesday, 22nd November 2022. Let’s be prayerful for his safety and quick rescue,’ according to the family source.
The Eastern Updates reports that this is coming just a few days after about three policemen of the Enugu State command have been confirmed dead after they were attacked by unknown gunmen at Agbani, the headquarters of Nkanu West Local Government of the state.
The Eastern Updates gathered that the ugly incident took place Saturday morning at a roundabout near the Agbani Divisional Police station.
According to reports, the police officers were on their normal stop-and-search duty when the assailants sighted them and immediately opened fire, bringing down the three security operatives.
The attack occurred less than 24 hours after a former Commissioner in the state and Oji-River Local government’s chairman, Chief Gabriel Onuzulike, and his elder brother were killed at their Nkpokolo-Achi hometown by gunmen.
