According to reports, a police officer was killed in the Isuofia Community of Anambra state’s Aguata Local Government Area.
Governor Charles Soludo lives in the village of Isuofia.
According to a neighbourhood source, the gunmen assaulted the intersection where security personnel were stationed and started fire.
According to the source, the shooters may have been enraged at the prospect of a security post being stationed in the area.
“The hoodlums rushed the neighbourhood, firing nonstop, while civilians fled for safety.” “In the process, one police officer was slain,” the source claimed.
DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, spokesman for the Anambra State Police Command, acknowledged the incident but stated that no police officers were slain.
The incident, according to the police spokeswoman, occurred on the expressway rather than in the community.
However, he stated that three police officers were injured during the operation, which was still underway.
He also stated that a bloodstained car was retrieved, indicating that the hoodlum was killed.
However, community reports stated that the incident had place in Isuofia and that one police officer was murdered.
