Yesterday, at Ijora Badia, in the Apapa area of Lagos State, robbers on power bikes tried to rob a bullion van.

The robbers, who had arrived Marine Bridge on several power bikes, dislodged a bullion van laden conveying a huge amount of money from its escort vehicle by opening fire at them.

It was said that the robbers started shooting sporadically into the air to scare motorists and residents, and attempted to escape with the bullion van. Their progress was  slowed down by heavy traffic.

Punch learnt that the Divisional Police Officer, Apapa, Usman Ndanbabo, and policemen from the Area B Command arrived at the scene after being alerted by the sound of gunfire. The robbers reportedly disembarked from the bullion van and engaged the police in a shootout.

Other police divisions within the area command were said to have also blocked all the escape routes and dispatched anti-robbery teams to assist the Apapa Division.

In the gun battle, a member of the Nigerian Navy and two other civilians were said to have sustained injuries, and  one of the robbers was reportedly killed while another was arrested. The other robbers escaped with injuries.
