Unknown gunmen have killed three policemen on duty at a security post in Onitsha Anambra State.
It was gathered that the incident happened around 9 am on Sunday on the Ukaegbu /Ezeiweka road in Onitsha.
The gunmen who stormed the area were said to have opened fire on the policemen while their operation van was also set ablaze.
It was learnt that two other persons were injured during the shooting incident.
A witness 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 the 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.”
