Three police officers attached to the Edo Police Command have been killed by gunmen in Benin, Edo State.
TVC NEWS gathered that the police officers had been posted to provide security for fun seekers at the Ogba Zoo and Nature Park in Oredo Local Government Area of the state.
The gunmen, suspected to be kidnappers, also abducted the chief executive of the leisure park, Andy Ehanire, in the process.
The gunmen also took the rifles of the police officers they had killed.
The violence disrupted activities at the leisure park as many fun seekers scampered for safety.
The spokesperson of the Edo Police Command, Moses Nkombe, who confirmed the killings and abduction on the phone, said the situation had been brought under control while the remains of the police officers had since been deposited at the Benin Central Hospital morgue.
