Gunmen ambushed a US Embassy vehicle in Nigeria on Tuesday, killing four persons, but the White House has confirmed that no Americans were among the casualties.
Two employees of the US consulate and two police officers were among the deceased.
The Amiyi/Eke Ochuche communities in Anambra state’s Ogbaru Local Government Area were the scene of the attack.
“No US citizens were involved and therefore there were no US citizens hurt.
“We are aware of some casualties, perhaps even some killed,” John Kirby of the US National Security Council said.
The spokesperson for the Anambra Police Command, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, also revealed that the assailants “made away with two police operatives and a driver of the second vehicle in the convoy.”
Ikenga confirmed that joint security forces “have embarked on a rescue and recovery operation in the area.”
