Other injured officers are currently receiving medical treatment at a hospital.

She noted that the Commissioner Of Police, CP Augustina Ogbodo, on receiving the distress call immediately dispatched Tactical Teams to the scene, which equally swung into action by giving the hoodlums a hot chase but regretted that the hoodlums escaped.

“The Commissioner of Police has visited the scene of the incident with her management team for on-the-spot assessment,” she stated.

SP Onovwakpoyeya said that the CP has called on well-meaning individuals of the State to avail the Command with useful information that can lead to the arrest of the fleeing hoodlums.

The PPRO further assured the people of round-the-clock visibility patrol of the nooks and crannies of the state.
