Photos: Ogun SARS Officials Kill Armed Robber During Gun Battle

Operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), Abeokuta in Ogun State, on Thursday, May 31, 2018, recorded a triumphant victory over a gang of cross-border bandits after a gun battle. During the fire fight, a member of the syndicate was killed by the police bullet while others scampered for safety in different directions.

It all started when the men were alerted that the armed robbers had snatched a Lexus 350 Jeep at Oke-Ilewo in Abeokuta, the state capital. The hoodlums were heading towards neighboring Benin Republic when they ran into a brick wall in the FSARS operatives on Sango-Idiroko Road.
Apparently bent on escaping with the vehicle, they opened fire on the policemen, but were subdued by the retaliatory and gallantry efforts of the officers.

The officers however tried to save the robber hit by bullets by rushing him to the hospital, but he gave up the ghost later on.
