The Kogi State Police Command on Wednesday said it lost two policemen when a patrol team was attacked by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP William Aya, in a statement, said the attack occurred along Agbaja Road, Lokoja.

According to him, the hoodlums emerged from the bush and attacked the team when they arrived for their routine patrol.

“The command lost two of its personnel during a gun duel with the hoodlums as they fled before the re-enforcement team arrived.

“The Commissioner of Police, Kogi State Police Command, CP Akeem A. Yusuf, immediately deployed a team of tactical operatives in the area while trailing the hoodlums to apprehend and bring them to book,” he added.
