Two robbery suspects whose identities are yet to be made public were gunned down over the weekend by the police in Ughelli ‘A’ Division of Delta State.

The suspects were killed when they engaged the police in a gun battle that lasted for about an hour, after they attempted to rob a customer, who had gone to the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) to withdraw money.

In the shootout that began at about 3pm, one of the suspects, who reportedly escaped with bullet injuries, was among the three-man gang.

According to the police Command spokesman DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, who confirmed the incident, the police at Ughelli ‘A’ Division received a distress call that three robbers were operating close to a new generation bank on Market road, Ughelli.
