In December 2018, the suspects attempted to rob a branch of First bank in Mpape but were unsuccessful.

While one was shot dead by the police when he attempted to escape, the others were arrested at the scene of crime.

James Idachaba, the police counsel, asked for a week’s adjournment to prepare for trial. He told the court that the prosecution would be calling seven witnesses to prove its case.

“Our case is very easy because the defendants were caught in the act,” he said.

The judge fixed March 13 for trial and ordered that the suspects be remanded in prison custody.
