Policemen Flee as Robbers Shoot Bank Customer Dead in front of Imo Government House

Policemen Flee as Robbers Shoot Bank Customer Dead in front of Imo Government HouseArmed robbers caught up with a victim around Okigwe roundabout, directly opposite Government House, shot sporadically into the air before ordering their victim to hand over the money.
He resisted and was shot three times before his money was snatched and they took off through Okigwe Road, and all this happened before the eyes of some fleeing policemen.

According to an eyewitness,  “I was at the newspaper stand across the road, just before the Okigwe roundabout, around 11a.m, when I heard a gunshot and then two young men in a Camry car blocked a man and his wife driving in another car.

“They asked the man to hand over the money. The woman ran out of the car, but the man refused to hand over the money to them. One of the robbers shot him three times and collected the money from him. I don’t know if he died.”

The eyewitness added that policemen, including personnel of the NSCDC at the roundabout opposite Government House, fled as soon as the robbers shot in the air.

Another witness recounted the tragic event,

 “I was four cars behind. When I heard gunshots, it dawned on me that those in the Camry were robbers, because the way they overtook me made me wonder where they were hurrying to.

After snatching the money, they were shooting into the air, which sent people running in different directions, including the policemen at the Okigwe roundabout junction.”

Daily Sun reports that the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the incident and disclosed that the victim was confirmed dead at the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri.

    Exactly where the services of the policemen are needed, they won’t move a muscle but when they see unarmed civilians, they will start puffing up like bread with excess yeast and waving their guns anyhow. See them! Bunch of cowards! May the soul of the victim rest well.

    When you give a police a gun with ten bullets inside or probably a gun that is not good when you are abt pulling a trigger it would not fire,,and the hear the sound of the guns the rubbers are holding is more then their own the would definitely take off….and most a times that is what happens

    Police are the worse corrupt and coward security agencies. They always channel their energy in collecting #20 from Keke and Taxi drivers that struggle to survive with the little they got..
