Police kill four highway robbers in Ogun

By Segun Olatunji, Chukwudi Akasike, and Simon Utebor

“Police  in Ogun State  on Tuesday said  they killed   four robbery  suspects and recovered  three pistols  after foiling their attempt to rob  travellers on the LagosIbadan Expressway on Tuesday.

Police spokesman for the state, Mr.  Muyiwa Adejobi,  said   in Abeokuta  that the incident took place at about 9am at Fidiwo junction along the expressway.

Adejobi said, “An 18-seater Hummer bus with  number plate Abuja BRA 445 GWA  travelling with 18 passengers  from the North  to Ibadan on getting to Fidiwo was attacked by three of the passengers.

“One of them brought out a locally made pistol and hijacked the vehicle and  diverted it into the bush where other members of the gang were waiting for them.

“An individual on the expressway,  who saw the bus being  driven into the bush,  alerted the Divisonal Police Officer of Ishara Division about the attack.”

Adejobi added that the DPO, Haruna Bashir, led his men into the bush where they saw the suspects robbing the passengers.

He said the suspects  fled  on sighting the policemen, adding that four of the hoodlums who engaged the police in a gunfire died  on the way to the hospital for treatment while the others escaped with bullet wounds.

Adejobi assured the public that police would always provide adequate security for them.

Meanwhile,  a policeman was reportedly shot and two rifles stolen in a failed bank robbery attempt in Port Harcourt, River State on Tuesday.

It was learnt that the suspects stormed an old generation bank in the city at about 2am and headed for the strongroom.

However, one of the policemen on guard was said to have fired intermittently at the hoodlums, preventing them from reaching the strongroom.”
