A team of Patrol Operatives of the Federal Road Safety Corps comprising an Officer, a driver and two other staff on patrol operations have been attacked by unknown gunmen in Anambra State, leading to the death of two personnel, with one sustaining severe injuries.
This is coming barely 24 hours after the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had sworn, Saturday, that henceforth, there will no longer be a sit-at-home activity in the South Eastern Nigeria to press home the release of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, from detention, vowing the new approach was to embrace peace negotiations organized by the Anambra State Government ably represented by its governor, whose approaches in the matter appear truly genuine.
The Patrol team were conducting routine patrol operations today Sunday , 3 April, 2022, at about 2:45 pm, along Igbo-Ukwu- Uga route in Anambra State when the armed men opened fire at them killing two of the Corps personnel, with one escaping into the bush and the team leader rushed to the hospital after sustaining severe injuries from the attack.
The Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, who was visibly touched, said he decried the attack, while condoling the families of the deceased staff, the Unit Commander and Staff of Igbo-Ukwu Command, and the entire Management and Staff of the Corps over the loss and prayed their souls to rest in peace.
Oyeyemi also assured that the Corps is already working with the Nigerian Police Force and other relevant security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators of this wicked act are arrested and made to face the full weight of the law, says Bisi Kazeem, an Assistant Corps Marshal and Corps Public Education Officer, of FRSC, Abuja./SHARE THIS
