The Ebonyi State Police Command, on Thursday, said that the hoodlums who hijacked the EndSARS protest in the state, gruesomely murdered a Police Inspector, Egu Omini, and cut off his private parts.

The command, while giving further update on the effect of the crisis, noted that it lost two officers during the mayhem while four were wounded.

The four officers wounded, Daily Trust gathered, were responding to treatment.
