The eyewitness, Benita Utoro, said the gunmen later succeeded in kidnapping their target after sporadic gun shots in the incident which happened around 9:47pm Thursday.

“It was if there was a riot or crisis. When we heard the gunshots we knew it was either robbery or kidnapping. The gunshot was much. People tried to escape and hide so bullet doesn’t touch them.

“When we came out, we saw two police officers dead and the driver of the vehicle,” she recounted.

Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Rivers State Command, DSP Nnamdi Omoni confirmed the incident, saying “We are on the trail of the gunmen.”
