Michael Chukwuebuka, Reporting

Operatives of the Anambra State Police Command, on Sunday, killed a man driving the vehicle of ‘unknown gunmen’ who were on operation at Uli, Ihiala Local Government Area of the state.

The state’s police command’s spokesperson, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, said the gang members escaped during a fierce clash with security forces, leaving the driver of their operational vehicle, dead.

“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.,” Ikenga said.

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, however, said that operation was still ongoing in the area, while further details will be made available.
