Anene explained that the Force is still investigating the motive behind the attack, adding that the identities of the victims are still unknown.

“They went out for routine patrol on Wednesday, immediately they came out they were ambushed by unknown gunmen. A motorcyclist passing by was also hit. The two died before they could be rushed to the hospital”.
