The Police Command in Delta State has confirmed the killing of two of its officers by gunmen.

The incident happened along Ugbolu-Illah road in Oshimili North Local Government Area of the state.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Ali, confirmed the killing to newsmen on Tuesday in Asaba, NAN reports.

He said that the police, however, killed two of the gunmen, but regretted that a stray bullet from the police killed an old woman during the gun battle with the hoodlums.

Ali, who said the two officers were attached to “Operation Delta Safe” of the command, noted that the attackers took away their service rifles after the attack.

“During the attack, the police also killed two of the gunmen, and recovered two pump action guns and some charms from them.

“However, an old woman was also killed in the process by a stray bullet as the police team was chasing the gunmen.

“We have deposited the body of the woman in a morgue and talks are ongoing with the family to see that something is done,” Ali said.
