Gunmen, yet to be identified, have killed two policemen in Enugu State at a checkpoint.

According to Sun, the policemen were killed during a shooting incident in a security post mounted by the officers in Nachi in the Oji River Local Government Area of the state.

They were said to have died on the spot while the sound of gunshots caused pandemonium as commuters on the road scampered for safety.

The incident is the latest in what appears to be a growing trend of attacks on police stations and security personnel in the South-East region of the country.

The governors in the region recently announced the set-up of a joint security outfit, codenamed ‘Ebube Agu’ to battle rising insecurity.
