Three officers have been killed in an attack on the Umutu Police Divisional Headquarters in Ukwuani Local Government Area of Delta State.

The Acting Public Police Relation Officer Bright Edafe confirmed the incident in a statement on Friday.

Edafe explained that the attack started at about 2.am when armed men in their numbers stormed the Umutu police station, shooting sporadically at the station.

According to the spokesman, the attack was repelled by men of the command but “unfortunately, two policemen were gunned down in the attack while one other is receiving treatment at a nearby hospital”.

Edafe said the gunmen who intended to burn down the station and cart away arms, did not succeed in their quest, noting also that normalcy has been restored to the area.

“The Commissioner of police is assuring members of the public that every measure has been put in place to arrest those responsible for this act, and also urges members of the public to help with useful and timely information,” the statement added. (Text, excluding headline: Channels TV)
