During a shootout, the suspect was caught up in a cross fire while one of the detectives sustained some injuries and the patrol van riddled with bullets. However, the Command’ Tactical Response Squad has been drafted to assist in tracking down the remaining members of the gang.

Members of the public are enjoined to volunteer information to the Police or any other Security Agency on anyone found with bullet wounds, please.

i hope it doesn't become a case like vampire where his gang would go and rescue them when they are at the court house to receive judgement. some policemen would have been bribed.

Abia guys are becoming something else o, brutal and everything.
People are fucking starving in Nigeria and doing terrible stuffs to make money. God please heal Buhari for him to lead Nigeria to a good place. Things needs to get better so that everybody don't get kidnapped out, shot out or even beheaded out. Too many gory news today, Linda please I can't take another more of this. I have had enough for one day. Give us news that can comfort our hearts a bit from the horrors we have seen and read today even if it is news of your Kylie kissing her new bae or even Dream pissing on Rob. At least one can exhale, what is this? The love for money is why the boys wasted that US veteran Chuks and that bank customer and even their own friends.

Imo state and Abia state Police officers are the best in the whole world. They have great people doing great work.
Our society,our mentality needs to be overhauled. The things some of us do to make money in order to show off are becoming darker. It's all in the mentality and fabric of our Nigerian society,trust me.

Thank God the wife of the Nigerian US Army has been vindicated. She was accused of killing her husband to the extent that she was not at her husband's burial because of fear of being attacked by her husband's family.
