There was palpable tension in the Enugu metropolis on Thursday afternoon as gunmen killed three policemen at a checkpoint in Enugu State.
The incident was said to have happened around 1:20 pm at a police checkpoint near Lomalinda Estate by Maryland suburb of the Enugu South Local Government Area of the state.
The gunmen were said to have kidnapped a woman along the road after the operation which eyewitnesses told our correspondent that lasted for about 30 minutes without challenge.
An eyewitness told our correspondent that the hoodlums robbed a POS mobile money operator after a stray bullet hit her.
When contacted, the police public relations officer, Daniel Ndukwe, confirmed the incident but didn’t provide details. He simply said, “details are sketchy but a manhunt has been launched for the attackers.”
