Armed men suspected to be sea pirates Friday night attacked a military checkpoint in Nembe, Bayelsa East senatorial district killing four soldiers and a policeman.

The incident occurred at about 11.30pm at the Nembe waterfront.

The hoodlums, believed to be in search of arms and ammunition, according to a security source launched the attack on the military checkpoint from land and water.

They reportedly stole rifles of the slain operatives as well as HP Guns and ammunition from the base before disappearing into the mangrove creek.

The authorities of the Joint Task Force and the state police command confirmed the incident.
Details later.
