Two police officers who went missing in an ambush in Benue State have been found unhurt, police said on Sunday.
The officers were amongst four mobile policemen who were declared missing after a police patrol team drove into an ambush by suspected herdsmen in Logo Local Government Area on Saturday afternoon.
But the remaining two officers are still missing, Benue police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, said in an update on Sunday morning.
“Two officers rejoined their colleagues. Unhurt. Hoping to see the remaining two,” the commissioner said.
The returned officers appeared at the police station in Ayilamo, near Azege town where the attack occurred, late last night. Rescue efforts coordinated by the police had been underway since Saturday evening.
