The Nasarawa State Police Command on Tuesday confirmed that three policemen have been killed by suspected herdsmen at Maraban-Udege village in the Nasarawa Local Government Area of the state.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, ASP. Samaila Usman, told newsmen in Lafia that the three policemen were ambushed and killed on June 3 on their way to quell a crisis between Agatu farmers and Fulani herdsmen.

Usman said, however, that the command had mobilised a reinforcement team, led by an assistant commissioner of police to fish out the killers of the policemen.

He said, ”the corpses of the policemen, an inspector, a sergeant and a corporal had been recovered and deposited at a morgue.”

The spokesman however did not disclose the names of the dead policemen.

Meanwhile, Governor Umaru Al-Makura has commiserated with the police over the latest killings.

He stressed the need for residents in the state to bury their differences and work for peace and harmonious co-existence.
