The hoodlums were said to have opened fire on the checkpoint and the police officers.

The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Ammani, said Many of the hoodlums escaped with varying degrees of fatal gunshot injuries in the ensuing gun duel, while two of the Operatives, who sustained severe gunshot injuries, were moved to the hospital, where they were confirmed dead and their corpses deposited in the mortuary for preservation.

Consequently, the manhunt of the assailants, which was immediately launched, resulted in the miscreants abandoning the black-colored Mercedes Benz ML 350 4Matic Jeep they used for the operation along Enugu/Port-Harcourt Road, Enugu. The vehicle, riddled with gunshots and blood stains, has been recovered. The recovery of the vehicle and the signs thereof corroborates the preliminary investigation, which suggests that at least two of the hoodlums were neutralised.

He ordered Tactical/Operational Operatives of the Command to sustain the ongoing manhunt operation, warning that anything short of fishing out and bringing the assailants to book, to assuage the unfortunate loss of the two Operatives, will not be accepted.
