A suspected armed robber has been confirmed dead after he sustained serious gunshot injuries during an exchange of gunfire with a Police Patrol team and Vigilante from the Aladja Divisional Headquarters in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.

This is coming as two others escaped from the superior firepower of the police.

The police also recovered one locally made pistol with one live cartridge from the suspect.

The Delta State Police Command led by CP Ari Mohammed Ali confirmed the report in a statement signed by the Acting Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe.

The Police spokesman said, “DPO Ovwian Aladja received a distress call that armed robbers were operating at Obogo community. He mobilized Police Patrol Team and vigilante in the community to the scene.

“The armed robbers on sighting the police patrol engaged the team in a gun duel but they could not withstand the superior firepower of the combined team.

“During the gun duel, one of the armed robbers sustained serious gun shot injury while two others escaped.

“The injured suspect was rushed to a nearby hospital but he gave up the ghost while receiving treatment.”

He added that, “Investigation is ongoing.”
