 Notorious robbery kingpin, Chinozo Felix, a.k.a. Power and his assistant, Ifeanyi Uche, on Tuesday night met their waterloo in the hands of the police. They were shot dead during a robbery operation at the Ojo area of Lagos State. Two of their gang members were also arrested, though unfortunately, the robbers had shot dead a victim and injured another during their clash with the police.

According to The Guardian, suspected armed robbers in four commercial motorcycles had stormed Alhaji Gafaru street, Imude road and attempted to rob the residents. The police immediately deployed the anti-robbery squad and Metro Patrol Teams to the scene.

The Lagos Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bala Elkana, said: “On sighting the police, the robbers opened fire but the police fired back and they were subdued. Two suspects, Ibrahim and Obi, were picked while Chinozo Felix and Ifeanyi Uche were fatally injured.”
