At least four people have been shot dead by some armed robbers who raided some Point of Sales (PoS) shops in the Omi Adio area of Ibadan, the Oyo State’s capital.

According to the PUNCH, the victims - commercial motorcyclists and residents, were chasing the robbers on Friday, after the assailants invaded the Ladeowo area of Omi Adio which is at the outskirts of Ibadan on motorcycles.

After successfully robbing five PoS shops, their activities were cut short when residents raised alarm, forcing the hoodlums to abandon the operation.

However, the robbers were said to have opened fire while fleeing after noticing that some residents and okada riders were chasing and closing in on them, killing four.

A witness who spoke on conditions of anonymity said, “Armed robbers came to our area on Friday and robbed PoS shops. They moved from shop to shop in search of PoS agents and the operation was successful.

“They had attacked five shops and some residents summoned courage and raised the alarm. The robbers fled on seeing this and some of the residents and commercial motorcyclists pursued them.

“They opened fire on those pursuing them and four of them were killed in the process. The police did not arrive until Saturday morning.”

Meanwhile, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Adewale Osifeso, when contacted said that “Investigations are ongoing. Updates would be provided accordingly.”
