Some unknown gunmen on Wednesday morning killed two Police officers on patrol along Agbaja road, in Lokoja, Kogi State.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, William Aya, in a statement said the attack on the police patrol team occurred along Agbaja road, Lokoja where the hoodlums emerged from the bush and attacked the team after they arrived for their routine patrol.
“However, the command lost two of its personnel during the gun duel with the hoodlums as they fled before the re-enforcement team arrived,” Aya stated.
He added, “The Commissioner of Police, Kogi State Police Command, CP Akeem A. Yusuf, immediately deployed a team of tactical operatives to the area while trailing the hoodlums to apprehend and bring them to book.
“The commissioner was said to have further directed the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Investigation, to commence investigation into the incident.
“The Commissioner of Police also uses this medium to call on the people of the area to assist the police with credible information on the identity of the hoodlums to enable the Command to curtail their acts of criminality.”
