No policeman was killed - Anambra police

However, contrary to reports that a policeman was killed during the open fire, the state police command has debunked the claim.

Reacting to the incident, the spokesperson of the Anambra State Police Command, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, confirmed the attack but said no policeman was killed.

He further stated that the incident did not transpire in the governor's community, rather it happened along the expressway. Tochukwu however disclosed that three police operatives sustained injuries and that the operation was still in progress.

He also said a vehicle was recovered with bloodstained showing that the hoodlum suffered casualty.

But the community sources insisted that the attack happened at Isuofia and a policeman was killed.
