Unknown gunmen kill police sergeant in Bayelsa police station


Unknown gunmen on Sunday killed a police sergeant at a police station in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

The Bayelsa state police spokesman, Mr Asinim Butswat, while confirming the incident on Tuesday said the sergeant was killed while he was on guard at the Sagbama Police Station in the Yenagoa metropolis.

“The policeman was killed on Sunday at about 8:30 p.m. in front of the Sagbama Police Station by two unknown gunmen on an unregistered motorcycle.

“We are working to establish the motive behind the dastardly act because they didn’t stop. We recovered the rifle of the dead policeman.

“They shot at the policeman and zoomed off but we have swung into action and some people have volunteered useful information,” Butswat said.

According to witnesses, the two gunmen escaped before policemen at the station could recover from the unexpected shock caused by the attack.
