Published

on

Gunmen suspected to be militants of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra have killed a Divisional Police Officer in Imo State, Fatmann Dooiyor, a Chief Superintendent of Police.
The slain DPO was reportedly killed while trying to repel the attack by the armed IPOB members.
Dooiyor was the DPO for Omuma at the Governor Hope Uzodimma’s community in the Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State.
The armed gang struck on the day IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was to be arraigned at a Federal High Court in Abuja.
The Department of State Services (DSS) did not produce him in court.
According to a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer of Imo, CSP Mike Abattam, six of the gunmen were killed by the police while 11 were arrested.
Abattam said the bandits in convoy of three vehicles invaded the community but were repelled by police led by the Area Commander, ACP Benjamin Abang.
He said that the police were alerted when bandits were sighted moving in convoy into Omuma town.
Abattam said, “The tactical teams of the command immediately swung into action, ambushed and launched a surprised attack on the convoy of the bandits which resulted to the neutralisation of six of the bandits while, 11 of them were arrested to the station.
“Unfortunately, the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Fatmann Dooiyor paid the supreme price.
“The teams later recovered the three vehicles abandoned by the bandits to the station which includes, two Toyota Highlander SUV vehicles with registration numbers Abia MBL 517 AT and LAGOS, JJJ 984 EL respectively and a milk colour unregistered Lexus Jeep to the station.
“Presently, the command’s tactical teams and Special forces led by ACP Evans E.Shem are combing the bush for possible arrest of the bandits that fled into the bush,” the statement added.
Suspected IPOB militants had attacked the community earlier in the year.
They had killed a security guard at the residence of Uzodinma and set the building on fire.
