Gunmen kill police officer, chop off manhood



An Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Ukam Efut, was on Tuesday evening brutally killed by suspected gunmen who attacked a security checkpoint at Agwa in the Oguta Local Government Area.

After his death, the gunmen reportedly chopped off the police officer’s manhood and fled with it.

A report in Daily SUN says the cop was shot dead by the gunmen before severing his manhood.

The source who pleaded not to be mentioned narrated that the gunmen met the Ukam and his colleagues at a checkpoint and opened fire on them.

“Mr Ukam was shot dead and his penis cut off by the gunmen and ran away with it. One of the other two officers at the checkpoint sustained wounds on his face.

“The place the incident happened is called Okpo-Efi junction, at Agwa on Ejemekwuru road. It’s really unfortunate that they made away with the man’s private part. The community is quiet now.”

The chairman of the community, Ekene Onyejiekwe, who confirmed the incident told our correspondent that the remains of the slain cop had been deposited at a morgue in Owerri.

When contacted, police spokesman Michael Abattam confirmed the incident but added that two of the gunmen were also killed by the police during a gun duel.
