Unknown assailants on Wednesday killed two members of a police patrol team along the Agbaja road in Lokoja, Kogi State.
William Aya, the Kogi police spokesperson, in a statement on Wednesday, said the gunmen engaged the operatives in a gunfight.
“The commissioner of police, Kogi state police command, CP Akeem A. Yusuf, immediately deployed a team of tactical operatives to the area while trailing the hoodlums to apprehend and bring them to book,” Aya said.
“He further directs the deputy commissioner of police to commence an investigation into the incident.
“The commissioner of police also uses this medium to call on the people of the area to assist the police with credible information on the identity of the hoodlums to enable the command to curtail their act of criminality.”
