Two policemen were allegedly killed in Aba on Thursday when unknown gunmen attacked a police team in Aba, Abia State.
Reports say that policemen from the Eziama Division went to a hotel called 32 Rooms in the Umuode Area of Osisioma LGA and arrested a boy.
As they were about to leave the hotel with the boy, they were blocked on their way out by a group of boys in a black Lexus car.
They started exchanging fire, during which the officers were overpowered, and they started running.
Some were said to have run into the bush, while others ran into nearby shops.
The policeman in the vehicle was reportedly beheaded while another, the other running along the road, was gunned down by the hoodlums who left the scene with their captive.
However, when Nigerian Newssphere contacted the Police Public relations officer in Abia state, ASP Chinaka Chioma Maureen, she described the report as fake.
