Some unidentified armed men have attacked a police checkpoint located at Uratta junction, Aba, Abia State, in the early hours of Tuesday.
The unknown men who were ostensibly armed to the teeth stormed the arena, unexpectedly; killing two police officers while they set their vehicle, (a sienna) ablaze.
According to an eyewitness who spoke to our correspondent, the police officers were mounted at the strategic point, conducting a stop and search operations before the ugly incident transpired.

The eyewitness also told Obinwannem that the gunmen escaped after committing the arson.
At the time of this report, there was a massive arrest in the area, by men of the Nigeria Police Force.
