A team of three policemen attached to the Umutu Divisional Police Headquarters in Delta State have allegedly been reported murdered by unknown gunmen in the area.

Reports gathered by Orient Daily reveals that the deceased were killed at a checkpoint on Wednesday morning by armed hoodlums around 7:40a.m.

The incident occurred at a checkpoint mounted by the late officers along the Obeti/Oliogo Road, headquarters of Ukwuani Local Government Area of Delta State.

Local sources who preferred anonymity told journalists that the patrol Toyota Sienna recently donated to the Umutu police division was burnt in the process.

One of the sources said the gunmen after killing the police officers, reportedly went ahead to set them ablaze inside the patrol Toyota Sienna vehicle.

His words, “Three police officers attached to the Umutu Division Police Headquarters were attacked and killed on arrival to a checkpoint between Obeti and Oliogo in Ukwuani Local Government Area of Delta.

“They were burnt beyond recognition in their patrol Toyota Sienna”, the source disclosed.

Tension is said to have gripped residents of Umutu, Obeti and Oliogo and other neighbouring communities following the incident.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack as at the time of filing this report.

However, efforts to confirm the sad incident from the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bright Edafe, proved abortive.
