He said: “From the report that reached our command only one person, and not four, was killed in the unfortunate attack by bandits.

“The person killed was the rider of the tricycle and the two injured are the traders who were rushed to a medical facility in Abejukolo, headquarters of Omala LGC after a reconnaissance mission by our officers and men.

“On receipt of the report, the Commissioner of Police, Edward Egbuka, quickly deployed a tactical squad and officers of the Division to the scene to possibly fish out the perpetrators.”
