“Following the report, police detectives attached to the Ogidi Division rushed to the scene and cordoned off the area.

“The gang, on sighting the police, locked the entrance to the hotel and engaged the police in a fierce gun duel, which lasted for more than 30 minutes. The police responded, but with high restraint in order to avert innocent civilian casualties.

“As a result, one of the suspects, Ugochukwu Okafor, sustained gunshot injuries on the buttocks, while trying to disarm a police officer.”
