Nigeria police officers killed in ambush

Gunmen have killed two police officers in Nigeria’s southern Akwa Ibom state – the latest in a string of attacks on the country’s police force.

A spokesman said gunmen on motorbikes had tried to attack a police station at Ika on Tuesday but were repelled.

He said on the way to the station they had ambushed the two officers and had set a police patrol vehicle on fire.

In recent months dozens of security personnel have been killed and police stations burnt in south-east Nigeria.

Officials have blamed some of the attacks on separatists.
