The Police in Lagos on Wednesday killed five suspected armed robbers and one injured by bullets was arrested.

“The police in Elemoro got information that the suspects were operating at Abule Parapo, opposite Awoyaya in Elemoro area of Ajah around 2 a.m.

“The suspects engaged the police in a shootout as soon as they saw them. Two locally made double barrel shot guns, one cutlass and iron cutter was recovered from them.

“The gang had been terrorising residents of Ajah, robbing and raping women,’’ the source said.

NAN reports that the corpses of the dead and the injured suspects were brought to the Lagos State Police Command headquarters, Ikeja at about 12.15 p.m.

The operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) have taken over the case file from the Divisional Police Officer at Elemoro, SP Sani Limawa for further investigation.

When contacted, the command’s spokesman, DSP Joseph Offor, said he had yet to get the details from the division as at press time.
