SARS Kills Three Armed Robbers After UNIUYO Robber
Akwa Ibom State Police Command’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, weekend, killed three suspected robbers, who specialised in robbing students and residents of the University of Uyo, and communities around Ikpa Road, Ikpa Lane, Idak Okpo and adjoining areas.
it was gathered that the SARS operatives from Ikot Akpanabia, killed the three suspected robbers, after they had dispossessed students of laptops, phones, cash and other valuables around the students’ community.
The criminals had reportedly launched an attack as soon as they sighted the SARS operatives, who responded with superior fire-power around the Saint Joseph Primary School, Ikpa Road, and chased them into a ravine.
Sporadic and random shootings into the ravine, according to Imo Essien, a local vigilante, led to the killing of one robber instantly. However, the remains of two others, who escaped with bullet wounds, were recovered later by the locals around the jungle by the Cornelia Cornelly College Junction. Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Odiko Ogbeche, confirmed the incident. He disclosed that the criminals abandoned a locally-made pistol and stolen items.
