Gunmen In Hummer Jeeps Kill 4 Policemen, Burn 2 Patrol Vehicles-NAN

By News Agency of Nigeria

Unidentified gunmen in two Hummer Jeeps have shot and killed four policemen in Oraifite community in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State, Southeast Nigeria.

The four policemen were on routine patrol in the area on Monday night when the incident happened.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) learnt that an inspector and eight other policemen had gone on routine duty at Emeka Offor Junction in the area at night when the gunmen opened fire on them.

An eye witness account said that some unidentified bandits operating in two Hummer Jeeps opened fire and killed four the policemen.

The witness said that the bandits later set fire on the two police patrol vehicles before taking the guns belonging to the dead and others, who ran away.

Confirming the incident, Mr Emeka Chukwuemeka, the Anambra Police Command spokesman, said three policemen were killed by the robbers.

He said that men of the command had swung into action to track down the fleeing hoodlums, adding that “we are making progress in catching up with the robbers.

“It is possible that the robbers sustained injuries because there was a serious gun battle between our men and the robbers but because nobody was seen from their side, people concluded that the police did not challenge the robbers,” Chukwuemeka said.

When ppl are lamenting the state of the nation as per the recent happenings, you are trying to make a few bucks... pure heartlessness, well I hope you fail in your selfish agenda

ANAMBRA UNDER SIEGE

Anambra State is under siege and only God Almighty will save the 'Light if the Nation.'Orsumoghu, Oba, Oraifite, Amichi are areas where unknown assailants have attacked and killed security details and weapons carted away and yet nothing had been done to get at the culprits.Can we now say that there is any sense of security in the country or is it a ploy to bring back the check-points? It had happened a few years back. We wait to see.

bad omen

dats bad for our image as a nation.

It might be that Boko is tool of Judgment.

Boko may be instrument of judgment at least against wicked rich ones and brutal armed forces. Meanwhile for those concerned, check out this wonderful internet income opportunity.

Dick Heads

So, a region known for armed robbery and utmost disregard for human lives are blaming BH for dis killings. The South where armed robbery is ur culture nd u guys are blaming BH? U southerners are too dull and blind to see the truth. DICK HEADS!

the police no longer have

the police no longer have respect in the eye,s of Nigerians they are seen as bigger thievies who will seat back and allow the army to do the fighting for them, see them on the road so dety,unkept, and act like criminals they are not concious of any thing apart from money. God help them and their lazy attitude. they cannot defend themselves

boko haram

IT IS VERY UNFORTUNATE THE WAY THIS SENCELESS PEOPLE CALLED BOKO HARAM ARE KILLING INNOCENT SOUL(PEOPLE)IN THE COUNTRY, MAY THE LORD REWARD THEM ACCORDINLY.I PRAY FOR MORE STRENGHT FOR OUR NIGERIA POLICE FOR THERE GOOD JOB AND THE LORD WILL GRANT THE SOUL OF THOSE THAT HAVE DIED INTERNAL REST (AMEN)

I thought the new NPF uniform

I thought the new NPF uniform will reform the NPF

Re: Blood of the innocent

Excellent, this is just the beginning we tend to forget that the lord we serve never sleep, it serves them right. After killing innocent people they think they can get away with it, innocent blood don't flow just like that. The recent killing of the innocent lady in Kano is one among many. My fellow Nigerians the earlier we keep religion out of this and face reality the better for us all.

BOKO HARAM: GOD SENT

Boko Haram is God sent but using their own strategies. But thank God they have started to enter Govt Resserved Areas (GRA)in Maiduguri. Alhamdullahi. The Rich have started running for cover in Maiduguri.

I know the culprits!

This is the hand-work of Igboko Haram. No amount of stage-managed and sponsored will fool us to ask for the return of Check-points.

Boko Haram are not the only evil doers in Nigeria....

Sometimes, people always judge without reason or defence for thier statement. This people who act in such way are neither security agencies or lawmakers which have the responsibility on any such act of this. Surprisingly, any evil act in Nigeria will be accused to BOKO HARAM which i have the assurance that 75% of what is happening in Nigeria is acted by another group rather than BOKO HARAM. So Nigerian, always think b4 saying......

ibb's boys

All hail ciroma! Dan fooled deo is in town. The boys just want their share of the oil money...sorry groundnuts

Qraqing

This is the begining of the worst to come.

Take note GEJ

Edon de happen for south,very soon it will be westhern region,so security agents should broaden up,to cover the whole nation not concentrating in one section of the country.May Allah save us from the hands of devils.

THEY ARE BOKO HARAM

THESE ARE SENIOR BOKO HARAM USING HUMMER, IMMEDIATE IMPOSITION OF CURFEW AND JTF DEPLOYMENT SHOULD BE AFFECTED BY THE GOVERNMENT BEFORE THE SITUATION RUNS OUT OF HAND,TWO INCIDENCES AGAINST POLICE?NO THEY ARE NOT ARMED ROBBERS BUT BH, DON'T MIND THAT THEY ARE NOT NORTHERNERS' BH ARE EVERYWHERE ACCORDING TO GEJ, CRUSH THEM B4 THEY CRUSH THE ENTIRE POLICE THERE.

gun men in hummmer

Some illiterats have already started blaming boko haram in the southeast which have been territories known for high crime rate and business oriented community conflicts for decades even before the creation of boko haram by evil politicians. Don't face your problems be blinded by sentiments until you perish.

Hard Talk

Igbo men with money! Robbers to the core. Rubbish.

ENEMIES OF GEJ IN THE SOUTH EAST AT THE SPONSORS

This must be the handwork of southeast and south-south politicians who do not wish jonathan well. It did not start today and unless measures are taken to nip it in the bud more should be expected.
People are hungry and the rich are disgruntled because they have been short changed by the continual ineptitude in govt. We never see anything yet.
Jonathan can avert all of these calamities by sitting up instead of leaving the country in the hands of those he begs to make come back 2015.

EBO haram

Is this boko haram or EBO haram?

FG take note

I hope that will not escalate as happened in some northern states. the fed. government tha run out of security ideas and resorted to crush them down method should take note. things are reaching

Govt.

Why some police doesn't wear protector while on duty, is it government's fault or police..

The Anambra BOKO HARAMS!!!

All these events in Kano, Anambra and Maiduguri are perpetuated by them.

Boko Haram in Anambra, period!

The incidences in Kano, Maiduguri and the hummer jeep one in Anambra are all done by Boko Haram. Is this writer paid by the northerners? He wrote what happen in Kano and Maiduguri as related and yet isolated the Anambra.

Go and fight boko haram and not the police

They steal even in a hummer jeep. Until we cary passports to visit each other in our zones in Nigeria, these robberies will not end. National Confab. Were they not paid by Andy Uba? We are all educated business men in the south east. They must be in Ghana or Togo by now with their loot!

police or cowards

Is unfortunate that the police has become a testing ground for every criminal to be,armed robbers boko harams etc, cause police has become toys bf Nigerians they cannot defend them selves,they run from their offices when their is any attack.Police or cowards.God save us and the police.

This is a 1st of the more to

This is a 1st of the more to come series of reprisal for raping those young innocent igbo girls. Police una own dey come

Another ROBBERS HARAm in the

Another ROBBERS HARAm in the south.

They are every where these High Priests of God of Abraham.

The end of the world is the end of the world of the Fathers who made us Passover Sacrificial lambs, Ramadan Rams and escape goat of the sin of the father who was drunk of power and judgment Noah.Take the Last Salvation Fish and Bread of Life Christ made with Trinity. The Father, The Word and Holy Ghost. Them who sent Jesus Christ to die on cross. Freedom of jesus Christ is the end of the Trinity and the end of the Trinity is the end of the old world of men.

Uhm! another harams !

Uhm! another harams !
