Unidentified gunmen have reportedly killed three officials of Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, in Isiokpo community in the Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Prior to killing the NCS operatives, attacked a military checkpoint within Omuaga axis of Elele-Owerre, close to the Port Harcourt International Airport, Daily Post reports.

Reports say the assailants destroyed the checkpoint and other properties in the area.

“The incident happened at 12 midnight when the armed hoodlums stormed a checkpoint manned by customs officials in Isiokpo and killed their victims, burnt down cars and went away without any interference,” said a source who is a resident of Isiokpo community.

While the Rivers State police command has yet to issue any statement on the incident, reports say, local vigilantes, OSPAC in the community later arrived at the scene after the hoodlums had finished the operation.
