The policemen were said to be in the front passenger’s seats of the cars when they were shot.
Another young man whose identity was not immediately known was also killed.
The cars were splattered with blood of the victims but eyewitnesses said nothing was taken from them, leading to speculations the killings were cult or failed business deals related.
Their gruesome murder sparked off wild protests, lootings and destruction spree in the Usiefurun area of Orhumworun on Saturday night.
A report that someone was killed in the mayhem could not be independently confirmed.
Not less than three cars were damaged and looted by recalcitrant youths of the area allegedly protesting death of the princes.
Meanwhile, the Delta State Police Command is yet to confirm the incident.
