During an operation in Uli in the state’s Ihiala Local Government Area on Sunday, members of the Anambra State Police murdered a guy who was serving as a driver for criminals.
Gang members reportedly fled following a skirmish with security personnel, leaving the driver of their operative car, who was slain, according to a news statement from the Anambra State Police command’s spokesperson, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga.
Ikenga said: “Anambra State Police Operatives today 26/6/2022 at about 4:45pm gunned down the driver conveying armed men in Uli.
“Operatives recovered one Honda Odyssey salon car with registration number WER 221 ZS-IMO and Charms.”
He said the police operatives were stationed at a nipping point, along Onitsha/Owerri road, Uli, when the gunmen approached them.
“The operatives repelled an attack by the gunmen. The gunmen plied one-way and started shooting sporadically, approaching the personnel at the nipping point.
“The operatives swiftly engaged the armed men and demobilize their operational vehicle. While some of them escape through the bush, the driver was neutralized. No loss of life on the part of the police.”
Ikenga said operation was still ongoing in the area, adding that further details will be communicated on any success in tracking the fleeing suspects.
