6 killed in Akwa Ibom police, robbers gun duel

In Akwa Ibom, The Police Command has confirmed the killing of six suspected armed robbers who specialised in car snatching in Akwa Ibom and Cross River States.


The Akwa Ibom State Commissioner of Police, Amiengheme Andrew, disclosed this while displaying the remains of the suspects in a Police Hilux van, at Ikot Akpan-Abia in Uyo on Friday.

He said the police, acting on credible intelligence, killed the six suspected armed robbers who were operating along the Itu/Calabar Highway.

Andrew explained that the robbers were on their way to Abia State to sell the car they had earlier snatched from a Calabar-based medical doctor.

He said the deceased had already contacted a buyer for the stolen Toyota Camry car, registered LSR 690 BM, and an unregistered motorcycle.

Andrew said items recovered from them included three locally made pistols, ten live cartridges, four expended cartridges, one pump action gun, one unregistered motorcycle, military camouflage cap and a Toyota Camry belonging to the medical doctor.

The CP warned hoodlums engaged in cultism, armed robbery, rape and other vices to desist forthwith or leave the state, as the command had no room for tolerance of any form of criminality. NAN
