The Nigeria Police Force says investigation is ongoing to arrest the suspected killers of seven policemen in Galadimawa area of Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN ) reports that suspected gunmen on Monday night at a roundabout in Galadimawa area of Abuja killed the  policemen who were on stop and search duty.

The force spokesman and  Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police,  Jimoh Moshood,  made the disclosure while briefing newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja.

“Investigation has commenced into the killing of the seven policemen by armed bandits,” he said.

Moshood said that the force would not leave any stone unturned in  bringing  the perpetrators to book.

"The killing of the policemen goes a long way to prove that the call for the disbandment of the SARS is not justified," he said.
