Three MOPOLs killed as Delta police launches manhunt for suspects

Operatives of the Delta Police Command have launched a manhunt for suspected killers of three mobile policemen (MOPOLS) in Ughelli, Delta State.

The three officers, whose names could not be obtained as of the time of filing the report, were killed by yet-to-be-identified assailants at a popular eatery along the East-West Road on Sunday night in Ughelli.

Reports say the police officers, who were on a special duty at the eatery, were taken unawares by the gunmen who killed them on the spot and made away with their service rifles.

The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Onome Onovwakpoyeya, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said a thorough investigation into the attack had been launched by the command.
