Armed Robbers held residents of Akanro Street in Ilasamaja area of Lagos hostage for over an hour with persistent gunshots.

Motorists stopped mid-way (at Agiri Bus-stop), turning back to avoid running into the dare-devil robbers who were a few meters away.

This correspondent monitored events from the said bus stop to get an appraisal of the event.

Initial accounts suggested the armed robbers were attempting to rob. However, on visiting the scene, eye witnesses at the spot of the 'final showdown' explained that the robbers were fleeing from the police and were double crossed at Power-line junction (on Akanro road) by another detachment of SARS operatives.

The resulting gunshots lasted several minutes within the over 1-hour operation, making residents several streets away scamper to safety.

Two of the alleged robbers were killed on the spot and one was taken away with serious gun-shot wounds.
As people gathered at the scene of the bloody encounter, some people were seen picking shelled 'Bullet Casings'. This depicted a high level of ignorance by many people as such could put them in trouble. If peradventure, one of those picking the bullet casings were to be stopped in a police 'stop and search' operation, how would he/she justify the possesion of such items? Despite efforts to stop people, as one person drops a shell, another simply picked it up, and off into his pocket it went. The situation was simply hopeless.

It will perhaps be my first time of commending the Nigerian Police Force, BUT this evening after several robberies in my area, eye-witness accounts describe the SARS operatives as courageous Gallant men. God bless them (the courageous ones) and by his (God's grace), the corruption infested ones will either turn a new leaf or be exposed to ridicule.

It is christmas season again, and the boys are desperate as usual. It is noteworthy that they are not the only ones frustrated with the Nigerian state (and condition).
While some of us continue to weather the storm, in most cases, they choose to further oppress less privileged citizens like themselves; may God help us all.

NB: The bodies were taken away by the police but atttached pictures show shelled bullet casings and blood spatters from those killed. It is quite thick suggesting blown out skulls
