Police Kill Robbery Suspect In Ogun State

The Ogun State Police Command said it shot dead a member of a gang of burglars on the Sagamu-Benin highway on Wednesday.

The command stated that the gang had blocked a section of the highway in the Ogbere area and attempted to steal a luxury bus owned by Young Shall Grow Motors.

National Police Public Relations Officer Abimbola Oyeyemi said a distress call had been issued to Ogbere police.

This prompted Divisional Constable John Okon to lead the anti-theft team in the division, where they engaged the bandits in a gun battle.

"At the end of the meeting, one of the suspects was shot dead, while others fled," he said.

Oyeyemi, deputy superintendent of police, added that the objects found in the gang were a locally made gun, a toy pistol and charms.

He said the state police commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, had expressed satisfaction with the performance of his men and had ordered a manhunt for fleeing gang members.

"The PC assures members of the public that their security is guaranteed all the time," said Abimbola.
