It was a sad Sunday for the family of two police officers that were on duty yesterday in Enugu.
The incident occurred on Sunday when some gunmen attacked a police checkpoint in Enugu State.
The gunmen, on arrival, were said to have opened fire on the officers who were manning the checkpoint, killing two of them at the spot.
The incident happened at about 11:27 a.m. along Kenyatta Road, near the Main gate of the University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus in Enugu North Local Government Area of the state.
A witness, who identified herself simply as Mama Chinedu, told PREMIUM TIMES that she and other shop owners ran away during the attack.
“Two policemen were killed by the gunmen. But two other officers escaped with gunshot injuries,” she said.
“We ran away because bullets were flying around here.”
