It was a troubled Thursday in Ibadan yesterday as some daredevil armed robbers numbering about seven, yesterday, attacked a bullion van around Idi Ape area of Ibadan, Oyo State capital, killing three police officers and four others, among whom was a kid hit by a stray bullet.



It was gathered that the bullion van was from Iwo Road Area when it was attacked by the robbers around Testing Ground, close to the Agodi Police Area Command.

Commissioner of Police in the state, Ngozi Onadeko, who visited the scene of the crime confirmed the death of two police officers, saying they were shot in the neck.

Onadeko also said the officers killed one of the robbers but the corpse was taken away by the robbery gang. She said the state had been locked down to prevent the robbers from escaping from the state.

The robbers cart away all the money in the Bullion van.
