Three police officers on escort duty were shot dead by gunmen in Rumuokoro area of ​​Obio/Akpor local government area in Rivers State on Thursday night.

In addition, the gunmen abducted the managing director of an oil and gas company based in Port Harcourt.

The officers, who were in a Hilux vehicle, reportedly escorted the CEO of the company and members of the company’s staff when they were intercepted.

The daredevil gunmen blocked the vehicle the main oil workers were in and immediately rained bullets on the police who were trying to stop them from reaching their objective.

After the officers were killed, the gunmen reportedly isolated their target after identifying him, dragging him into their own vehicle and driving away.

The gunfire sent cold shivers down the spines of residents and business owners who rushed for safety.

Within minutes, the area was deserted, with the gunmen left unchallenged, while the lifeless remains of the three cops became a sight.

In a viral video that later surfaced, bystanders gathered at the scene and looked at the dead bodies and discussed the issue in groups.

One of the voices in the video said, “It happened live in Rumuokoro. Live and direct. Jesus Christ! They killed three policemen and kidnapped the person they were escorting. Look at the balls on the floor.

According to the video seen by our correspondent, blood was still flowing from the heads of two of the cops.

When contacted, State Police Command spokeswoman Grace Iringe-Koko confirmed the incident, saying a full investigation had been launched.

“Yes, it’s true that three policemen were killed. It’s very unfortunate. They were accompanying the oil company workers when the incident occurred.

“But we are there and an investigation was opened immediately into the incident with a view to apprehending the suspects,” said Iringe-Koko, a police superintendent.
