Gunmen disguised in military camouflage took mobile policemen on guard duty by surprise in the early hours of Monday, December 13 when they stormed the Squadron 28 Police Mobile Force, PMF gate within the precincts of the Abia State police command headquarters in Umuahia in a gun truck.

It was learnt that the policemen had mistaken the armed men for military personnel as they drove towards the gate apparently in an attempt to gain access before suddenly opening fire on the unsuspecting cops.

In the process, a police Inspector identified as Friday Adams was said to have been shot dead by the invaders who reportedly zoomed off shortly afterwards.

The service rifle of the slain Inspector had yet to be found as of the time of filing this report amid fears that it might have been carted away by the gunmen suspected by the police to be members of a separatist group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
