“It’s true four officers were killed,” he said.

According to a source the gunmen also attacked the home of a commercial motorcycle rider and shot him dead.

“I was already inside when I started hearings sounds of gunshots. I didn’t bother coming outside because it was safer to stay indoors than to come outside,” a source was quoted as saying.

“They also went to the house of an Okada man known as Ejike, shot him dead and shot his wife. His wife is alive.”
