Sea pirates in Bayelsa state have reportedly killed 6 policemen who were among the 12 persons kidnapped in separate operations in Embe area of Bayelsa state.

According to THIS DAY, pirates had made away with a gunboat belonging to the police, in an attack which occurred in broad daylight, at about 1.30pm on Friday. The gunboat was said to have been escorting a barge owned by Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC) when it came under attack.

An eyewitness said that the gunboat and the policemen were all taken away. However, the barge and its occupants escaped because the gunboat was the target of the pirates.

The pirates reportedly left the murdered police naked as they made away with their guns and uniforms. The bodies of the slain policemen, yet to be identified at the time of filing this report, have been recovered and deposited at the morgue of the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa.
