The Rivers State Judiciary complex has been shut. This is after unknown gunmen invaded the complex, which houses the Rivers State High Court, and killed two private security guards, Tuesday morning.
It was learnt that the gunmen had invaded the judiciary complex and attacked their victims leaving two dead and another hospitalised.
A witness said that the attackers stabbed before decapitating the security men. He said the attackers left a bloody mess on spot where the security men were killed.
The court authorities have since closed the court to the public.
The Rivers State Police Command, Ahmad Muhammad, confirmed the attack.
According to Muhammad, the security men appeared to be sleeping when they were attacked by the unknown assailants.
“The security men were sleeping while on duty. The unknown assailants launched an attack on them with hard objects mostly on the upper parts of their bodies. By the time our men arrived the attackers have fled and we only found the bodies of the security men. But their heads were not severed.”
The attack came a day after five policemen were ambushed and killed by suspected cultists in the state.
