Police Foil Robbery In Delta
The Warri Area Command of the Nigerian Police last weekend foiled a robbery operation on a residential apartment in the community and killed a member of the armed robbery syndicate.
The armed bandits, on Friday night, invaded a house, No 20, Ekabo Street, Off Kosini Street, in the heart of Warri, where they robbed residents of their possession.
Police operatives, led by the DPO of B’Division, Eyo Anietie, promptly responded to a distress call and stormed the scene of the robbery and engaged the suspected armed bandits in a gun duel.
Besides foiling the robbery operation, one of the suspects, identified as Nathaniel Omoru, was killed while his partner allegedly escaped with bullet wounds.
A locally-made pistol, a phone and other items were allegedly recovered from the bandits while efforts are said to be ongoing to apprehend the fleeing suspect.
