A gang of armed robbers on Sunday night killed two policemen and two others in a deadly attack around World Oil Filling Station at Ibafo, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Witnesses said the robbers, numbering about 15, came in jeeps. On
arrival, one of them shot a plain-clothed policeman straightaway.
The gunmen it was learnt engaged some policemen and vigilance group
members at the filling station in a gun duel, shooting sporadically in a
bid to crush the resistance and scare away people.
As a result, bullets flew round, hitting an unspecified number of
people. Bizarrely, no reinforcement came from Ibafo Police Station,
located less than a kilometre away from the scene.
Presently, the walls of the deserted filling station were riddled with
bullet holes as hundreds of spent bullet littered the environment; an
evidence of a horrific battle.
A few weeks ago, robbers attacked Jimken Filling Station, a few metres away from this latest attack site, killing a customer.
