Gunmen have killed three policemen and set their vehicle ablaze in Onitsha, Anambra State.

It was learnt that two other policemen were injured during the shooting incident at a security post mounted by the operatives along Ukaegbu/Ezeiweka Road on Sunday.

The operation vehicle of the cops was also set ablaze.

The incident is the latest in what appears to be a growing trend of attacks on police stations and security personnel in the South-East region of the country.

The governors in the region recently announced the establishment of a joint security outfit, codenamed ‘Ebube Agu’ to "battle rising insecurity".
