Three staffers of the embassy and four police officers in the convoy were reportedly killed in the reprehensible and absolutely shameful attack. Two employees of the embassy were also kidnapped during the attack, but they were eventually rescued unhurt following a joint operation by security operatives. The Anambra State Police Command confirmed the arrest of two suspects in connection with the attack. It is benumbing that this crew of workers going about their lawful duties were killed by non-state actors in Anambra State. The attack underlines the very dangerous dimension that insecurity has taken in the country, with nearly every place considered unsafe.
