Four police officers have been shot dead by gunmen along MCC Edundu road in Calabar, capital of Cross River.

The gunmen were said to have attacked the police officers on Thursday morning.

Irene Ugbo, the police public relations officer, said the force has begun a manhunt for the assailants.

Describing the incident as “very bitter and ugly”, Ugbo said the command has been thrown into grief.


The PPRO added that the killers would not have a place to hide as the force would fish them out and serve justice on them.

“It is quite unfortunate. We feel really sad. The command is in mourning over the death of the four officers who lost their lives.” Ugbo said.

“We are investigating the matter and will surely root out the culprits, no matter how far they run or hide; we must get them and that I can assure you.”


The incident comes two days after two officers were killed in an attack on a police station in Aba, Abia state.

The hoodlums, said to be over 100, forcefully gained entry into the facility and also freed some suspects.
