Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Emma Elekwa, Awka

The Anam­bra State Po­lice Com­mand has de­bunked re­ports mak­ing the rounds that gun­men yes­ter­day struck at the As­sem­blies of God Church in Oguta Road Onit­sha, Anam­bra State.

The Po­lice Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Princess Nkiru Nwode, in a tele­phone in­ter­view, said the Onit­sha in­ci­dent had noth­ing to do with the church.

She said the at­tack was on po­lice­men who were on foot pa­trol along Oguta Road, and that the at­tack­ers were hood­lums who dis­guised as mas­quer­ades to dis­pos­sess in­no­cent cit­i­zens of their be­long­ings and in the process killed a po­lice­man and in­jured some oth­ers.
