Nigeria: 7 policemen killed by gunmen in southeast of the country


Seven policemen were killed in a series of attacks on security installations in Nigeria’s oil-rich Rivers state, police said Saturday.

Southeast Nigeria has seen a surge in attacks by gunmen targeting police and other security forces in the past few months in a region where separatist tensions are on the rise.

“The incident which led to death of seven policemen occurred last night at about 19:30,” Nnamdi Omoni, police spokesperson in Rivers state said in a statement about the three attacks Friday.

“Unknown gunmen driven in two branded Hilux vans attacked the special check point at Choba bridge, (and) in a surprise attack killed two policemen on duty.”

He said the same gunmen attacked Rumuji police station, killing two officers and burning a police patrol vehicle.
