Yet to be identified gunmen on Monday killed three Personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Imo State.

The murder incident which happened at EkeIsu market in Obiangwu Community in the Ngor Okpala Local Government Area of the state has thrown the state into panic.

A community source who doesn’t want to be mentioned told our correspondent that the slain corps were attacked in the early hours of Monday.

He said that the NSCDC personnel were riding in a vehicle when they were ambushed and killed by their attackers.

According to him, security operatives had taken over the community and said to be arresting youths of the community.

He said that the lifeless bodies of the victims were still at the scene as of the time of filing this report.

The source said ” three operatives of the NSCDC were killed last night at EkeIsu market in Obiangwu Community in the Ngor Okpala LGA of Imo State. They were ambushed while in their vehicle. Their bodies have not been evacuated as we speak. Soliders have taken over the community arresting every youth in sight.”

But when contacted, the spokesperson for the police in the state, Henry Okoye, who confirmed the murder of the three NSCDC personnel said that security operatives had moved into the community and retuned normally.

He promised to issue a statement on the incident later.
