The victims were rushed to the hospital.
Four police officers were feared killed as gunmen attacked a GTBank van near the bank’s branch at Amigo junction, along Nnamdi Azikiwe way, Kaduna.
Witnesses said the police officers closed from their duty post at the bank and were leaving the premises when they were attacked around 4:30 p.m.
“The gunmen just came from nowhere on a motorcycle and opened fire on the police officers who just closed from duty at the bank. Everybody started scampering for safety before security agents took control and cordoned off the area,” a witness said. “The gunmen zoomed off as they continued to shoot sporadically leaving the lifeless body of the victims in the pool of their own blood.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in Kaduna, Aminu Lawal, while confirming the incident said it was too early to say whether the officers are dead.
“It is too early for us to say whether the officers are dead because the incident just happened not quite 30 minutes ago and they have been taken to the hospital,” he said. “We are waiting for the doctor’s report before we can ascertain that.”
“We have also responded to the incident and will give you details very soon,” he added.
