Two members of a dare-devil armed robbery gang were shot dead by the police in the early hours of Saturday, during a botched robbery attack on the Ibese, Ogun State plant of the Dangote Cement company.

The gang numbering about seven had invaded the company armed with dangerous weapons and moved straight to the material section to cart away some armoured cables.

The Ogun State Police Command spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, stated that the policemen posted on duty at the company were alerted by the company security men and “they promptly moved to the scene.

“On sighting the policemen, the hoodlums engaged them in gun battle which lasted for about 45 minutes.

“At the end of the encounter, one of the robbers was shot dead while one was arrested with serious gunshot wounds but died on the way to the hospital.”

Oyeyemi added that other members of the gang escaped with various degrees of gunshot injuries, but,  items including “one locally made single barrel gun, 14 expended cartridges, dagger and a house breaking equipment were recovered.

“The Commissioner of Police (CP) Ahmed Iliyasu while commending the gallantry display of his men appealed to members of the public especially hospital to report anybody seen with gunshot wound to the police.

“He also assured residents of the state of adequate security before during and after the forthcoming Yuletide season.” (Daily Trust)
