Gunmen attacked and killed two policemen conducting a stop-and-search along Presidential Road, Enugu, on Friday night. Enugu State Governor Peter Mbah has placed a N10 million bounty on the heads of the killers and vowed to pursue them relentlessly.

Governor Mbah made the announcement after a State Security Council meeting attended by top security officials. He identified the suspected perpetrators as members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), an outfit linked to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The gunmen, suspected to be ESN members, arrived in several SUVs, including a black Lexus SUV. Governor Mbah urged the public to assist security agencies by providing any useful information that could lead to the arrest of the criminals.

He assured that the state government, in collaboration with security agencies, would spare no effort in hunting down the perpetrators and bringing them to justice. Governor Mbah emphasized that the sacrifice made by the slain policemen would not be in vain.

Meanwhile, the Enugu State Police Command confirmed the incident, stating that the operatives engaged the attackers in a gun duel, forcing them to flee. Two policemen sustained gunshot wounds and were hospitalized, while the attackers abandoned a Lexus RX 300 jeep.
