The robbers were said to be operating on two motorcycles popularly known as okada when they spotted a police patrol vehicle on routine duty and rained bullets on it, killing three policemen and injuring one[/color].

One of the policemen was said to have fired at one of the robbers who also died instantly.

It was gathered that the policemen attached to Area ‘C’ Command, Surulere, were deceived by the robbers in caftan thinking that they were responsible persons until they opened fire on them.

A police source at Ijora Olopa area where the incident occurred, said one pump-action gun fully loaded was recovered at the scene, while the bodies of the slain robbers and the policemen were taken to the mortuary.

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Alhaji Umar Manko, who confirmed the story, said the police were in a patrol vehicle and were shot from behind by the robbers.

Manko said the suspects who were three in one motorcycle, dressed in caftan, took advantage of the rainfall and shot them while on their legitimate duty around Ijora-Olopa.

“My men were ambushed by the robbers. But I can assure you that I would get them and make them face the wrath of the law,” he said.

According to him, the policemen were five inside the patrol vehicle when the incident occurred. He said three policemen were killed; one was injured while the driver was unhurt.

Manko said he could not immediately give all the detail of how it happened.

He said that the policemen were attached to Area ‘C’ Police Command Surulere, adding that investigation has commenced as he has ordered the officer in charge of the State Anti-Robbery (SARS), Abba Kyari, to fish-out the suspected armed robbers.
