Unknown gunmen have reportedly killed the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Rumuolumeni Police Division in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
Kingsley Chukwueggu was shot dead by the gunmen, who were in police uniform in the late hours of Sunday, 8th April while he was in a private vehicle returning to Port Harcourt along Awaza community road in Abia state.
