It suddenly parked in the front of the Catholic Church at Ibagwa Junction and someone who dress like a police man rushed and opened the boot and 3 boys with gun jumped down with their face covered, I was terrified. It was when I got home that I started hearing about killing of policemen. So this is what they did”, he said.
