He further claimed that hoodlums recently set up criminal camps in the neighbouring Ezioha Communiry in Mbaitoli LGA from where they lunch attacks on residents of the area.
Okoye said that the Commissioner of Police (CP), Mr Aboki Danjuma, had deployed a Tactical Squad to hunt down the hoodlums responsible for the dastardly act.
A community leader, who pleaded anonymity, in an interview with newsmendescribed the attack as a devastating ambush, and stated that the people of the community and neighbouring communities had been under siege by gunmen and kidnap suspects terrorising the area in recent times.
