Journalists could, however, not get details of the encounter between the police and the suspected armed robber, as policemen on duty declined to speak on the incident.

However, when contacted, the state Commissioner of Police, Adeyinka Adeleke, in a terse text message of confirmation to journalists, simply said, ‘True.’

It was gathered on Sunday morning that the suspected armed robber had been terrorising several communities in Udu and parts of Uvwie local government area.
