A fierce battle ensued today between officers of the Nigeria Police Force and Fulani herdsmen.

Naji indicated that the battle was as a result of the alleged killing and injuring of some police officers along Eku-Abraka road by some herdsmen.

The battle between the Policemen and Fulani herdsmen delayed motorists traveling to Asaba and Onitsha, while some other motorists had to beg others for help.

The police blocked the road for thorough security checks for some of the herdsmen who were suspected to be hiding inside the Ossisa forest, while commercial motorists at the same time were being delayed.

Some of the motorists, however, appealed to the Delta State Commissioned of Police, Zanna Mohammed to prevail on the matter.

Naij also indicated that the officer who got injured during the battle is now receiving treatment at the Delta State University Teaching Hospital, Oghara, while the remains of the Officer who lost his life had been deposited at the morgue.

The Fulani herdsmen clearly waited for the police and on sighting their van, opened fire.
