Unknown gunmen have reportedly killed two policemen guarding a mechanic workshop of a private transport firm, Royal Mass in Enugu Ezike, Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State.
The incident which happened on Thursday around 11 am in the morning at Mkpanpu Village near the Council headquarters involved an Inspector and a Sergeant.
Community sources told SaharaReporters on Friday, that there is palpable tension in the community and around the town as young men have deserted the town for fear of being hounded by security agencies, especially the police.
According to one of the sources, “the hoodlums came around 11 am in the morning, shot them and collected their guns”.
“Initially, people thought the incident happened at the loading part of the transport firm but local security operatives that visited the scene of the incident told us that it happened at the workshop located at Mkpanpu Village and that policemen were an Inspector and a sergeant.
“I don’t know how the police authority will post policemen to a private workshop,” the source said.
Efforts to get the reaction of the state police command were unsuccessful as the command’s spokesman, Daniel Ndukwe could not be reached as his mobile phone was switched off.
