BIZZARE: Police ASP shot dead, manhood chopped off in gunmen checkpoint attack


An Assistant Superintendent of Police, identified as Ukam Efut, was shot dead at a security checkpoint in Agwa, Oguta Local Government Area, Imo State, on Tuesday evening by fleeing gunmen.

His killers after shooting him dead, chopped off his manhood and fled with it.

A community source who pleaded anonymity said, “Unknown gunmen killed a police officer at Agwa Police Divisional Headquarters, Agwa, Oguta LGA, on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, at about 4pm. The deceased officer Ukam Efut and two others were at a certain checking point, as usual, where they mounted a roadblock and were collecting money from illegal oil dealers (bunkering).”

He said that while Mr Ukam, the deceased officer was shot dead and his manhood cut off by his killers who made away with his private part. The other cops were lucky to have escaped the scene although one of them sustained wounds on his face.

He added “We call the place he was shot dead Okpo-efi junction, Agwa Ejemekwuru road. The development was really unfortunate as they made away with the man’s private part. The community is quiet now.”

The chairman of the community, Ekene Onyejiekwe said, “He was shot by unknown gunmen. I received a distress call from the DCO of the police headquarters that a group of policemen had been attacked in the community.

“Before then, some of my people coming back from the farm told me about the incident first. The DCO asked me to assist in evacuating the slain cop. On arrival at the scene of the incident, I saw the DPO, DCO and the Area Commander. The Area Commander instructed that the remains of the fallen police officer be taken to the morgue.

“Members of the community and security operatives took the body to the morgue in Owerri. That is all I can tell you about the incident.”

A police source said the deceased was newly posted and that it was not more than two weeks when the deceased was transferred from Abia State to the area.

“He was the administrative officer and had two years to his retirement before he was murdered. It is really painful” he said.

The police spokesperson for the Command, Micheal Abattam, had yet to react to the development.
