Gunmen suspected to be militants yesterday evening killed four marine policemen and made away with a gunboat, off Abonnema community in Akuku-Toru local government area of Rivers State. The suspected militants hijacked the gunboat belonging to the Marine Police Division, with four policemen on board, who where on routine patrol of the Abonnema waterways. However, the lifeless bodies of one of the slain police personnel was recovered on Monday night while the remaining three were recovered in Tuesday.
