The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said a distress call was made to the police at the Ogbere division.
“This prompted the Divisional Police Officer, John Okon, to lead the anti-robbery squad in the division to the scene, where they engaged the bandits in a gun duel.
“At the end of the encounter, one of the suspects was shot dead, while others fled,” he said.
Oyeyemi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, added that items recovered from the gang were a locally-made gun, a toy pistol and some charms.
He said the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, expressed satisfaction over the performance of his men and ordered a manhunt for the fleeing members of the gang.
“The CP assures members of the public that their security is guaranteed all the time,” Abimbola said.
