The Nigerian Police, Jigawa state Command, with support of the special anti-robbery squad attached to the Anti-robbery squad leader, Alhaji Ali Kwara, yesterday foiled a robbery plan killing one in the process.
This was confirmed by Ali Kwara, who disclosed to newsmen in Dutse, that the robbers were intercepted while in the state for their dastardly act.
Ali Kwara said the squad was alerted by his informants that a gang of armed robbers, during their operation in Lagos, had snatched away a Toyota Land Cruiser Jeep, with registration number FE 380 LND, belonging to one Mrs. Vera Ohwojakpor.
He said the robbers had proceeded to Abuja and had stayed there for three months before coming to Jigawa for obvious robbery attacks when they met their waterloo yesterday.
According to him, during the operation, the anti-robbery squad succeeded in killing one of the three armed robbers in the car and the remaining two escaped into the bush.
He said after the operation, they discovered three guns and the stolen Toyota Jeep.
