What police should do As Gunmen attack Another checkpoint in the East & kill 2 officers

The issue of unknown gunmen attacking police stations is no longer news in Nigeria, especially in the eastern part of Nigeria.

It was just few days ago that Gunmen killed 3 officers and set their vehicles ablaze in Onitcha Anambra state. Several other officers were injured in the shootout which happened while the officers were conducting a stop and search operation at a security post mounted on the road along Ukaegbu/ Ezeiweka road.

Well, there is another report of unknown gunmen attacking police checkpoints, this time, not in Anambra but in Enugu.

Sahara reporters claim that the gunmen killed 2 officers, during a shoot out, at a security post mounted by the officers in Nachi in Oji Rivers LGA.

The issues of gunmen attacking police checkpoints has been a growing trend of attacks on police stations and Security personnel in the East.

In other to reduce the rate of attacks on the police in the east, the Nigerian police can temporary stop the mounting of road blocks and stop and search operations on major roads in the east, at least untill the growing attacks can be contained.

However, they can capitalise on this trend to take out these gunmen, since Checkpoints and road blocks have been the targets of gunmen, the Nigeria police can use checkpoints as a trap to lay ambush on them.
