Kidnappers have allegedly killed 4 policemen attached to a checkpoint and made away with their riffles at Akai Effa area of Calabar, Cross Rivers state, multiple sources have told to REPORT AFRIQUE.

Residents are now deserting  the area after the bodies of slain policemen were discovered early Thursday morning in the area.

The police team, according to a source,  acting on intelligence  went to the area to  accost some hoodlums suspected to be kidnappers around midnight   but were gunned down by the suspected kidnappers.

The bodies of the policemen had been removed but everywhere looked desolate as most residents had left while some  simply locked their apartments for fear of police revenge.

“How could they have come at such time of the night to accost armed kidnappers without putting on bullet proof vests and informing police units around the area”. Ita, a resident of the area told reporters.

He said a burst of gunshots were heard between 12.00 and 1.00 am “All of a sudden we heard loud gunshots and after some time everywhere went quiet’.

He said the kidnappers may have been tipped off on the coming of the team and mounted an ambush to attack the policemen. Ms Irene Ugbo, the Cross River Police spokesman refused to answer calls on her GSM line.
