Two policemen lost their lives, while three others were wounded following gun battles with suspected armed robbers in Lagos on Sunday, Lagos State Police Command spokesperson, DSP Ngozi Braide, said on Monday.

Braide told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that the gun battles took place in the Ejigbo and Orile-Iganmu areas of the metropolis.

According to her, a gang of armed robbers engaged the police in Ejigbo, a Lagos suburb, where one of the robbers was killed and a policeman wounded.

She said that a pump action gun was recovered from the robbers, while the wounded policeman was taken to a hospital, where he later died of gunshot wounds.

The spokesperson told NAN that another robbery gang had an encounter with policemen from the Iponri Police Division on the Orile-Iganmu interchange bridge at about 2.30a.m.

“One of our men was killed and three others wounded; one of the robbers was also killed, while others escaped with bullet wounds,” Braide said.
