Three officials of Nigerian Customs have been reportedly killed by unknown gunmen in Isiokpo community in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The armed men destroyed the checkpoint and other property in the area.

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

While the Rivers State police command is yet to issue any statement on the incident, report says members of local vigilante, OSPAC in the community later arrived the scene after the hoodlums had finished the operation.
