Anambra Police Launch Man Hunt For Armed Insurgents Who Infiltrated Uga Town, Killed 2 Policemen

Anambra State Police Command has launched an intensive manhunt for armed insurgents who infiltrated from a neighboring State and killed two Police Personnel on 28th December 2023 at about 18.30 hours (6.30 p.m.)

The gang which disguised in military fatigue and seemed to be on a kidnap mission were jolted on seeing two armed Police officers approaching their direction. They opened fire on the officers who had moved ahead of the convoy they were escorting to decongest traffic gridlock. Other personnel returned fire, careful not to hit many motorists who were in traffic, forcing the bandits to flee.
