Grieving families and friends are demanding justice for the police officers who were ambushed and killed while investigating the disappearance of three colleagues in Delta State. The Nigeria Police Force confirmed the killing of six officers and the disappearance of six others in a statement. The deceased officers were identified as Inspector Abe Olubunmi, Inspector Friday Irorere, Sergeant Kuden Elisha, Sergeant Akpan Aniette, Sergeant Ayere Paul, and Sergeant Ejemito Friday. The missing officers include Inspector Onoja Daniel, Inspector Onogho Felix, Inspector Emmanuel Okoroafor, Inspector Joel Hamidu, Sergeant Moses Eduvie, and Sergeant Cyril Okorie.

The families and friends of the slain officers expressed their sorrow and grief on social media platforms. Videos and posts shared by relatives showed the emotional scenes during the burial of the officers. They described the deceased as dedicated and gallant officers who will be deeply missed. The families also expressed their hope that those responsible for the killings will be brought to justice.

However, some Facebook users criticized the Nigeria Police Force for not disclosing the incident immediately after it occurred. They accused the police authorities of trying to conceal the killings and not valuing the lives of their officers. Protesters also gathered at the police headquarters in Benin, demanding answers from the police on the incident.

The delay in revealing the details of the incident has raised concerns about transparency and accountability within the Nigeria Police Force. The families of the slain officers and the public are calling for a thorough investigation into the incident and for those responsible to be held accountable.

It is important for law enforcement agencies to prioritize the safety and well-being of their officers. The families of the slain officers deserve justice, and it is crucial for the police authorities to address the concerns raised by the public regarding the incident. The Nigeria Police Force should ensure transparency and effective communication in such cases to maintain public trust and confidence in the police.
