November 29, 2016 – Armed Robbery Attack On Arik Airline In Port Harcourt Foiled As Police Kill 3 Robbers

3 suspected robbers were yesterday killed by NPF officials during a shootout with some dare devils on a robbery mission at UTC Junction in Port Harcourt Rivers State.

One of the hoodlums, who escaped being killed by a special intelligence team from the Inspector General of Police, said they had planned to attack a plane belonging to Arik airline.

While queuing behind other vehicles at a traffic light, the robbers reportedly ran out of patience as one of them alighted from the car and opened fire on some policemen at UTC junction.

While they were trying to escape from the superior fire power of the policemen on duty, 3 of robbers were gunned down while the 4th sustained gunshot injuries.

This is what Rivers State Police spokesperson Nnamdi Omoni said on the attack:

The injured suspect identified as Peter James reportedly confessed to being a part of a killer gang who killed a police officer during the last APC rally in Okrika.

    WHILE THEY WERE trying to escape from the superior fire power of the policemen on duty? This is unlike it. A good news it is, for up until now, we have often heard of robbers armed with more sophisticated weapons than the police. Thanks be to the “change”! (Not APC change o!)

    These dare devil robbers are getting more bold to the extent that they wanted to take their robbery to the next level by robbing Air line passengers. If nothing is done to curb them they will become an international armed robbers by boarding free Air Line, rob people from one destination and disembark at another destination or Country to Country. Nonsense!! this is more why this act must be stopped before it becomes broader like kidnapping.

    Kidnapping business did not just start yesterday. Just because the previous administration paid no attention to do something to halt this, that is why kidnapping business has become the most lucrative business in Nigeria today. The rule of thumb for any nation that want to stop crime is to stop the crime before it becomes endemic . How do we do this ? We can only achieve this by killing the criminals. You have to kill to clean up the crime. Nobody has ever been convicted for kidnapping in Nigeria that is why those coming after them are becoming bolder and broader.

    please what happened to the police officer that was pretending to be one of the gang that gave out the information to the Nigeria police,he was shot too,is he alive? Those guys did not open a single fire at the police cos they were attack on their way @the traffic point. I believe one on one the Nigeria police can not withstand the gang they mounted a Gun boat machine Gun right inside the Toyota sienna,each of them were loaded with three magazine of AK47 each, those guys are not just robbers they are militant. Million of Dollar was inside the Arik airline that was their target.
