Three police officers were reportedly killed on Friday by suspected armed robbers at a checkpoint in Arab Road junction, Kubwa, Abuja.
Eyewitnesses said the cops were gunned down at the checkpoint early Friday morning.
An eyewitness simply identified as Abdullahi said, “I rushed here when I learnt of the incident, to see their bodies being evacuated by other policemen. This Arab road is known as a crime zone in this Kubwa. Thieves used to snatch people’s bags and okadas but police presence changed a lot of things, I just can’t believe that they met such a misfortune.”
