Members of a vigilante group have killed three suspected armed robbers operating along Agbede and Oshokoshoko axis of Kogi State.

It was gathered that the armed robbers blocked the Agbede and Oshokoshoko road between 12 midnight and 1 am yesterday and robbed passengers of their belongings.

A witness who was a victim of the robbery incident disclosed that their vehicle ran into the robbery gang and were robbed, but that men of the vigilante got wind of the incident and stormed the area, engaging the robbers in a gun battle that led to the death of three robbers before the arrival of the operatives from the State Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The Kogi State Police Command Spokesman, Mr. Williams Ayah confirmed the killing of three robbers, saying the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Kabba Police Division received a distress call and immediately deployed his men.

“On getting there, it was discovered that the three armed robbers after an encounter with the vigilante fled into the bush but on combing the bush, the Police squad discovered three dead bodies of the armed robbers who were masked,” he said.
