An Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of one of the Area Commands in Edo State has been shot alongside two other police officers by suspected robbers in the early hours of Friday at the popular Murtala Muhammed, MM, Way in Benin City.
When the hoodlums sighted the ACP and his team that were on a rescued mission to the troubled Way, they attacked and shot them.
The Murtala Muhammed, MM, Way, Upper Sokponba, Idogbo and Ugbekun areas are considered as core dens of criminal groups.
Both the police officers and other injured persons were taken to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital and other hospitals nearby for treatment.
This latest development has caused high tension in some part of Benin City, the Edo State capital and nearby towns.
The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, SP Chidi Nwabuzor when contacted, did not respond to his calls.
