Police sergeant named Peter Ikwen was killed by unidentified gunmen on Friday night, chaos broke out on Egerton Street in the Calabar South Local Government area on Saturday morning.
When confirming the tragic occurrence over the phone with Vanguard, Police Public Relations Officer SP Irene Ugbo said it was unfortunate and wouldn’t go unpunished.
According to the information I have, the incident happened this morning around 8:00 am.
He had just left the Obong’s palace, where he was stationed for duty, but he was also attached to the Atakpa Division, so he wanted to take a moment to relax before he was shot and killed.
While he was on the move, his attackers ambushed him close to a trash can not far from the Obong palace and shot him.They carted as well.
We grieve with the relatives of the deceased, but we won’t give up on finding the perpetrators; we will hunt them down, and the long arm of the law will undoubtedly catch up with them.
They also took away his rifle in the process.
