Photos: Gallant police officer gunned down in fierce battle with armed robbers in Abuja

A gallant police officer attached to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT), Sergeant Felix Igbasan, was killed in the line of duty on Monday, November 13th.

Sgt. Igbasan died at about 4:00am at Maitama General Hospital, Abuja, where he was rushed to after sustaining multiple bullet wounds during a fierce gun duel with an eight-man notorious armed robbery gang. 

The gang, led by one Gabriel Alfa, were said to have robbed a senior immigration officer in Abuja. They have been arrested and four AK47 rifles recovered.

Late Igbasan, who was described as the bravest and most reliable officer in the team was before his transfer to Abuja, a member of the Special Anti Robbery Squad(SARS) in Lagos.

In a Facebook post, the Officer-in-Charge of the SIRT unit, Abba Kyari wrote:

IGP, please ensure on~duty cops are routinely issued bullet~proof flak jackets as they set off on assignments. I believe this will considerably reduce casualty rate on officers.

Abuja is really becoming something else. Yesterday night, I heard some gunshots near my house (Gwarinpa area)at night. I called the police to keep watch over our estate since our guard was on leave. The police are really trying and risking their lives to protect us. May his soul rest in peace.
