Anxiety has taken over Nkpor, Idemili North Local Government Area – near Onitsha – after police officers monitoring the two weeks lockdown of Anambra State allegedly shot two youths to death.

It was gathered that the shooting was caused by refusal of the deceased to offer bribe to the officers on duty.

But the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Haruna Mohammed, blamed it on an unprovoked attack on the Police patrol team “when a substance suspected to be acid was poured on an officer by some miscreants and his rifle also snatched.”

He said that efforts were ongoing to restore sanity in the area.
