Unknown gunmen have killed a police officer during a church service at Oviri-Ogor Road in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.

The incident was confirmed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Onome Onovwakpoyeya while addressing newsmen in Warri on Sunday.

The PPRO said: “Yes, he (police officer) followed his principal (not named) to the church.”

It was gathered that before his death, the Police Inspector, was serving at PMF 31, Ogwashi-Uku and was on escort duty at the time of the incident.

“The service was abruptly stopped at about 11.15 a.m. when gunshots rented the air inside the church premises and worshippers scampered for safety.

“It was after the gunmen escaped that some youths came out only to discover the police officer in a pool of his blood,” an eyewitness told NAN.

According to the eyewitness, the police officer was rushed to the Central Hospital, Ughelli where he was confirmed dead.
