Gunmen storm Edo leisure park, kill three police officers, kidnap official | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Tragedy struck in Benin, the Edo State capital, yesterday, as three policemen providing security at the Ogba Zoo were shot dead by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.

In the process of the attack, the gunmen abducted the chief executive of the leisure park, Dr Andy Ehanire and took the rifles of the policemen after killing them. The three policemen were killed at about 6 pm., while their arms and ammunition were taken by the attackers.

It was gathered that the killing disrupted activities at the leisure park as parents and children took to their heels on hearing the sporadic gunshots from the invaders.

Edo State Police spokesman, DSP Moses Nkombe, who confirmed the killings and abduction said the attackers will soon be arrested as security has been beefed up, adding “our men are on the trail of the suspects and we will get them no matter how far they try to run.

He went on to assure members of the public that the park remains safe for fun seekers.

The remains of the police officers have since been deposited at the Benin Central Hospital morgue.
