Unknown gunmen on Thursday, April 11, attacked a police checkpoint along the Abakaliki -Enugu Highway, setting a patrol van belonging to the Police ablaze.

The incident reportedly happened at Ishieke junction on the outskirts of Abakaliki town.

Sources in the area claimed the unknown gunmen killed one police officer and kidnapped another, but this could not be independently verified as of the time of filing this report.

Joshua Ukandu, the police spokesperson in Ebonyi, confirmed the attack.

However, he said he knew about the killing or kidnapping of any police officer, saying reports from the scene were still sketchy.

He said, “An incident happened this morning, but I am still trying to put the details together. At this point, I can’t confirm much, let me get my facts right.

“I just got information that there was an attack at that point, but I don’t have any other information.”
