Gunmen suspected to be drug dealers have shot dead four National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency officers in Ondo State..
The victims were said to have been conducting a stop and search on some vehicles along Owo/Ifon axis of the old Benin road when the assailants ran towards them on three motor bikes, and shot them dead at a very close range.
A Hilux Van the officers used was set ablaze by the attackers, leaving villagers scampered for safety.
According to vanguardngr.com, the Ondo State Commandant of the NDLEA, Haruna Dagara, said the corpses of the officers had been recovered from the scene adding that the agency would collaborate with sister security agencies to launch an investigation into the incident.
“It is true. They are our officers who were manning the Ifon division of our station in Ose local council area of the state because that particular area leads to Benin in Ondo state and it is well known for drug trafficking,” he said.
