The slain police officers were posted to the garden to provide security for fun-seekers at the zoo and nature park.

The killing disrupted activities at the zoo as many fun seekers scampered for safety, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported.

“Our men are working on that (the incident), though we have not made any arrest,” the police spokesperson, Mr Nkombe said.
