The suspects, Ahmed Fatai, Rafiu Mogaji, Godwin Uzong and Bayo Kadiri died last night at the Onipanu Police Station, Lagos State. They reportedly died after bleeding for over 4 hours from bullet wounds and
other injuries sustained as a result of the mob attack on them. .
Their bodies have been deposited at the Ikorodu General Hospital morgue, while the case has been transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Sqaud (SARS), Ikeja. They’re said to have robbed a woman, Onchris, around Ilupeju.
They dispossessed her of N400,000 and telephone. They then proceeded to Jibowu where they attacked a Diamond Bank customer, Ms. Joy Oroh and snatched her handbag containing N200,000. They reportedly shot Ms. Oroh on her thigh before collecting the money she had withdrawn to foot the hospital bill of a sibling admitted at the Infectious Disease Centre (IDH), Mainland Hospital, Yaba.
But unfortunately for the gang that also shot a motorcyclist who chased them, a mobile policeman on bank guard on Morocco Road reportedly opened fire on them, demobilizing them. While their rider escaped with gunshot wounds, the other 4 were not so lucky as bystanders caught up with them and had them severely beaten.
