Unknown gunmen have beheaded an Assistant Superintendent of Police, identified as Linus, along East Street, Ndiegoro, Aba, Abia State.

The gunmen were said to have attacked the police team at Tenant road junction by East street at about 5a.m, Tuesday.

On sighting the hoodlums, other police officers allegedly fled after exchanging gunfire with them.

The hoodlums were said to have caught one ASP popularly known as “Agbalagba” and cut off his head.

Vanguard gathered that the gang also made away with the dead policeman’s gun and uniform.

A resident who pleaded anonymity told Vanguard that the gruesome killing on Tuesday has sent fears to most residents of East Street, Ngwa Road, Akpu Road, Ndoki Street, Etche Road, and Ulasi Road all within the Ndiegoro axis into panic as the criminals were said to have threatened to attack more policemen and residents.

“With what we heard, they said they have declared war on police and the residents. I don’t know what happened ,but with the way they killed the policeman, with his head removed and what we heard they were shouting during the attack shows that there’s problem in Aba,” the resident said.
