A policeman belonging to the Counter Terrorising Unit attached to the Delta State Government House, Asaba, simply identified as Solomon has been shot dead.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the policeman, among others, were on a mission to River State when they ran into an ambush by unknown gunmen at a location in Rivers State.

The source said, “Some members of CTU in Government House went for a mission in Rivers State on Friday, and ran into an ambush by unknown gunmen.

“The gunmen shot at their vehicle, they retaliated and unfortunately, Solomon was shot dead while other members of the team escaped.

“It is sad for Solomon to die in the mission. Solomon was among the police team that escaped last February incident when unknown gunmen killed three policemen on the entourage of Governor Okowa.”

An unconfirmed report indicated that Solomon’s twin brother slumped and died when the news of his death was broken to him.

When contacted, the spokesperson for the Rivers State Police Command, Grace Iringe-Koko, confirmed the incident, saying the convoy ran into the gunmen while they were operating.

Iringe-Koko said, “Yes, I can confirm that it happened. He was not the target. What happened was that the gunmen were operating when their convoy ran into them.

“In the process, he was hit by a stray bullet. The incident occurred in Rumuji, in the Emuoha Local Government Area section of the East-West Road.”
