    Herdsmen attack Delta community, kill police ASP




    An Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP, has been shot dead by suspected herdsmen, at Umuachi-Afor community, Ndokwa East Local Government Area, Delta State.


    According to Vanguard, until his death, the ASP was attached to the Ashaka police divisional headquarters.


    He was said to have led a team of police officers in search of the herdsmen who had been terrorizing the area with kidnapping activities when he was killed.


    The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed the incident to the newspaper.


    According to him, “We had a situation where someone was abducted and that took our men into the bush in search of the hoodlums.


    “On their way, they were ambushed by the armed herdsmen who, in fact, opened fire on the police rescue team. In the process, the ASP was hit by bullets.
    The PPRO, however, did not disclose the identity of the deceased police officer, saying, “His family is not yet aware of the development.”
    He added, “There is reinforcement into the bush and we are getting support from the local vigilante team.”
