Gunmen have reportedly killed three policemen and set their vehicle ablaze.
The incident, The Nation gathered, happened around 9am on Sunday, September 19, 2021, along Ukaegbu /Ezeiweka road in Onitsha.
It was learnt two other persons were injured during the shooting incident in a security post mounted by the police operatives.
An eyewitness said the gunmen may have been angered by the alleged extortion by operatives at the security post.
A source said: “Any time they stay there, the residents feel relieved because the place is a dangerous zone. But the way they extort motorists is what people don’t like.
“The problem the Policemen have is that they don’t listen or monitor situation. People are angry because of the situation of things in the country and you continue to extort them every day.
“Nobody knows the unknown gunmen, many people believe they are members of the Pro -Biafra agitators and the reason all of us should be careful about things we do.”
