128 Nigerian policemen killed in 3 months


Baku-APA. A total of 128 Nigerian policemen died on duty in the past three months, the country's Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris said Wednesday, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

 

The police personnel died while preventing attacks or ensuring law and order in various parts of the West African country, Idris said in a statement to Xinhua.

 

The police chief cited recent killings by bandits in the northwestern state of Zamfara, the southeastern state of Anambra, and in Okrika waterways in the oil-rich Rivers State as "disturbing cases in point."

 

He said efforts have been intensified to halt the trend of killing.
