Gunmen attack FRSC patrol team, kill 2 in Anambra
Armed men attacked the team of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Patrol agents, resulting in the death of two staff members and one of them seriously injured.

This is contained in a statement issued by Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO) Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) Bisi Kazeem on Sunday in Abuja.
Kazeem said the team consisting of an officer, a driver and two other staff members on patrol operations were attacked by armed men on Sunday.

He said the patrol team was conducting routine patrol operations at around 2:45 pm along the Igbo-Uku-Uga route in Anambra state when the gunmen opened fire on them.

This, he said, led to the deaths of two Corps personnel, one of whom escaped into the bush and the team leader rushing to hospital after sustaining serious injuries from the attack.

Kazeem quoted the Corps Marshal (FRSC), Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, who denounced the attack and expressed his condolences to the families of the deceased personnel, the Unit Commander and the Igbo-Uku Commando General Staff.

Oyeyemi also sympathized with the entire Directorate and General Staff of the Corps for the loss and prayed that their souls rest in peace.
He also assured that the Corps was already working with the Nigerian Police and other relevant security agencies on the incident.
This he said was to ensure that the perpetrators of the evil act were arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law.
