The State Police Public Relations Officer, Tee-Leo Ikoro, who confirmed the incident said the suspects were arrested shortly after the crime was committed.

He said the suspected robbers engaged the police in a gun battle before two of the gang members were apprehended.

Ikoro said, “For long, there hasn’t been such attack in Ondo State; that is to tell you that the rate of crime in Ondo State is minimal, and with this occurrence, our men immediately swung into action, leading to the arrest of two of the hoodlums. We are still after the fleeing robbers.”

He said the injured was receiving treatment at a hospital, while the remains of the deceased had been deposited at the morgue of the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, Akure

The PPRO disclosed some of the items that were recovered from the suspected robbers, which include guns, cartridges, mobile phone and charms.
