    You fail to kill Boko haram and decide kill people who have not yet proven wrong. You should have arrested them for further inquire. Why do you kill people without court ruling? Chicken reasoning.

    If truly they are armed-robbers then well done to the Policemen. If the Police do not kill them first then the robbers will kill the police.
    …Its a “dog eat dog world” out there.
