5 killed as police foil attack on Rivers Station

Five gunmen were killed and about six arrested as operatives of the Nigeria Police Force in Eleme local government area of Rivers on Friday foiled an attempted attack on one of its divisions in the State.

The gunmen reportedly camped at a forest between Oyigbo and Eleme preparatory to launch the attack before they were ambushed by operatives following an intelligence report.

A source familiar with the incident said that the hoodlums opened fire, on sighting the security operatives, leading to a gun battle that left five of the gunmen killed and scores arrested.

“Many of them who came from the Oyigbo axis on their way to Eleme were killed…More than six of them were arrested by the police.

“The body of those killed were thrown into a Hilux van, as well as those arrested,” the source said.

“As I speak with you now the place is tensed because of the heavy shooting we heard last night and early this morning,” he added.

Items recovered from the hoodlums include arms and ammunition, military uniforms, various mobile phones and walkie-talkie.
