Two armed robbers who carried out violent attacks on two commercial banks in Kabba, Kogi State on Friday have paid with their lives as they were shot dead by a crack team of police men.


Two of their accomplices were also arrested. Announcing the cheery news at the headquarters of the Kogi State Police Command yesterday, the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Saidu Madawaki stated that the police engaged the robbers in a fierce battle before two of them bowed to the superior firepower of the police.

He, however, said a police constable, Mr Tanko Paul was shot dead when the banks were robbed.

Madawaki gave the names of those arrested as Rasaki Bello and Bayo Femi who he said are currently assisting the police in their investigations.

Explaining how the incident happened, Madawaki said that at about 13.30 hours, some unidentified gunmen numbering about 25 attacked the two banks simultaneously with improvised explosive devices and heavy gunfire.

He noted that the police on duty at the Kabba Divisional Police Headquarters resisted the armed robbers from advancing toward the police station, pointing out that as a result of the fierce encounter with the police, the robbers were unable to succeed at one of the banks but were able to cart away unspecified amount of money from the other bank branch.

The Police Commissioner also disclosed that some of the robbers were able to flee with the corpse of one of their gangsters killed by the police.

One civilian was killed while three policemen were shot, with two of them sustaining serious gunshot injuries.

He also said the police recovered a Toyota Camry car with registration number ‘Lagos BS 612 AKD’ riddled with bullets holes from the fleeing robbers, and noted that many of the robbers escaped with bullet wounds. Two motorcycles were recovered at the scene of the incident.
