At the Rumuokoro flyover in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers state, unknown gunmen who turned to be kidnappers  ambushed and attacked a convoy of Toyota Prado jeeps at about 3:00 pm on Thursday November 25.

During the gun battle which lasted for several minutes, three policemen were killed, one person was kidnapped, and the gunmen made away with huge amount of money.

Speaking with an eyewitness who pleaded to be kept anonymous, an uber driver, He said the gunmen were dressed in military camouflage and had been loitering around the area, apparently waiting for their target before attacking.

In a viral video that later surfaced, Passers-by gathered at the scene and were watching the corpses and discussing the matter in groups.

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

 However, the spokesperson of the  Rivers State Command, SP Grace Iringe-Koko,  confirmed the incident, saying a full scale investigation had been launched.
