Suspected gunmen in Imo State have ambushed and killed no fewer than eight Nigerian security agents comprising soldiers, Policemen and Civil Defence Corps.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the incident happened on Tuesday morning in Umualumaku community, Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of the state.
The ugly incident has thrown the community into panic as the operatives of the joint security task force team, who were in two security trucks were ambushed and set ablaze by their attackers.
According to eye witnesses, none of them survived as they were burnt inside their operational vehicles by the attackers, who committed the alleged dastardly act and escaped.
Following the ugly incident, reinforcement teams had been sent to the scene of the crime with the intent to arrest the suspects and rescue the corpses of the slain security operatives.
Some of the residents in the community, who spoke and do not want their names mentioned, revealed that they saw the security agents a few minutes before they were set ablaze.
They said that the community had been thrown into confusion, owing to the development and were not sure what will happen next as there may be likely reprisal attacks in the community to fish out the criminals behind the attacks.
