Hoodlums Attack Rivers Community, Kills 3 in a Shootout

Three Foreigners have been feared kidnapped by unknown gunmen in Obio/Akpor Local Government of Rivers state.

Our correspondent gathered that the expatriates were travelling in a convoy when their vehicle came under attack around tank junction within Rumuokwurusi Community.
One of the police escort in the convoy was reportedly killed along side two others in an exchange of gunfire with the hoodlums. The other victims are a woman and her little daughter who were hit by stray bullets in front of their shop.

However the spokesman of the Rivers state police command Nnamdi Omoni said nobody was kidnapped in the attack, instead Omoni told our correspondent Clifford Omachi that a police man involved in a stop and search operation was killed in the attack alongside two civilians who were hit by stray bullets.
