…flee with service rifle
Dare-devil gunmen, Thursday, reportedly shot and killed a mobile police officer providing security to a business complex opposite Edjeba Junction on Airport road, Warri Delta State.
The officer who was said to have been recently posted to the beat, was shot several times and died on the spot.
According to sources, his service rifle was swiftly whisked away by the gunmen.
It was further gathered that the criminals may have targeted the police officer for his rifle, as businesses in the complex were not robbed.
Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, when contacted, confirmed the killing of the police officer, but did not give further details.
