It was learnt that the the slain officers were two inspectors and one female who was relaxing in her room when the gunment struck on Friday night.

The attackers reportedly carted away two AK 47 rifles from the police station.

The police spokesperson in the state, Loveth Odah, who confirmed the incident, said the corpses of the slain officers had been deposited in a mortuary while the two who sustained bullet wounds were receiving treatment.

Ms Odah urged the general public to provide the police with information that could lead to the arrest of the attackers.

“Yes, three policemen were killed in the attack. We don’t know the identity of the attackers yet; and we are calling on the general public to provide information to the police in order to hunt down the perpetrators of this heinous crime,” Ms Odah said.

The state police commissioner, Philip Maku, reportedly visited the Onueke Police Station on Saturday morning to ascertain the level of havoc done by the hoodlums. He was reported to have vowed to fish out the perpetrators.

In his reaction, the Commissioner for Internal Security in the state, Stanley Okoroemegha, said the government was saddened by the incident.

Mr Okoroemegha gave security agencies 48 hours to brief the government on how such a breach could have occurred without any intelligence to forestall it.

KanyiDaily had reported how a thief was dragged out of police station and burnt to death by angry mob over murder in Cross River State.
