Robbery Attack at a Fuel Station on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway Killing Four People

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.
