He, however, didn’t give details of the identity of the nabbed ring leader who attacked the police patrol van.

TODAY SPLASH had earlier today reported that a policeman was killed by some gunmen, on Wednesday morning, after attacking a routine police patrol team and set their van on fire.

The incident is coming barely 10 days after some gunmen attacked Nsukwa Divisional Police Station and killed three officers as well as torching the station.
