Four fleeing robbers shot dead in Warri


The police in Delta State on Monday shot dead four suspected armed robbers around the Ajamimogha area of Warri after dispossessing a man of N126, 000.00.

The gunmen were allegedly shot dead after a Volkswagen car with a Lagos number plate, FKJ 385 CV, which they were escaping with rammed into an electric pole around Ekpen Street off Ajamimogha Road.

Eyewitnesses told our correspondent that the hoodlums had engaged the police patrol team from A’ Division Warri in an exchange of gunfire.

The gunmen, however, ran out of luck when one of the bullets from the police hit the vehicle thus making it to lose control before it rammed into a pole.

Our correspondent gathered further that the robbers had earlier robbed some traders around the Cemetery area of the city before they met their waterloo.

Four of them were reportedly shot to death on the spot of the accident while trying to escape from the scene.

The spokesperson for the Delta State Police Command, SP Celestina Kalu, who confirmed the incident to our correspondent, said the gunmen were trailing a man who had just gone to collect money from a bank.
