Two private security men were on Saturday killed in a robbery attack that lasted half an hour at a major fish depot along Zaria Road off Lagos Street in the Kaduna metropolis.
An eyewitness who pleaded anonymity said the robbers came in a Volkswagen Golf car, and went straight to the CIC Fishing Depot where they shot sporadically to scare away residents and those that were at the fish depot.
A private security man who attempted to shut the gate against the robbers was shot dead on the spot while his colleague was also shot in an attempt to call the police with his cell phone, and later died.
The robbers, it was learnt, carted away an unspecified amount of money from the sales department and zoomed off towards the Kaduna western part of the state.
Men of the State security outfit, Operation Yaki, that arrived later, went after the robbers who fled as they heard police siren.
Public Relations Officer of the Kaduna State Police Command, Aminu Lawan, (DSP) who confirmed the incident said the command had already launched a manhunt for the robbers, while investigation was ongoing.
