An Inspector of Police was shot dead while a sergeant escaped death when suspected gunmen attacked them while they were on patrol at Isua-Akoko in Akoko South-West Local Government Area of Ondo State, on Monday.

The two policemen were on patrol duty to check the menace of kidnappers when suspected gunmen opened fire on them. The gunmen attacked the police inspector identified as Lasisi, killed him and took away his rifle while the sergeant escaped death by the whiskers.

According to a source, the incident happened along Ise Akoko, in Akoko North-East and Isua Akoko in Akoko South-East area of the state.

The incident, the source said caused anxiety among the residents as the gunmen shot sporadically for minutes to scare people away.

The source explained that the policemen were on surveillance duty on the road to curtail the activities of the kidnappers in the area when the gunmen who had been laying siege opened fire on their patrol van. (New Telegraph)
