It was gathered that the hoodlums attacked the residence of a prominent businessman in the area and shot and killed the businessman identified as Onche Jonah, alias Salaco.
Unfortunately for them, one of them ‘accidentally’ killed one of their members during the operation.
According to local blog, CitizenTVNigeria, the incident happened on Sunday (today).
Eyewitnesses said after the robbers fled, neighbours rushed to the late businessman’s house, and discovered the body of one of the robbers before finding the lifeless body of the businessman in one of the rooms.
Contacted, the local government security secretary, Justine Chikpa, confirmed the incident saying the the council chairman Mrs. Grace Igbabon has been informed and she has since directed the police to lunch manhunt on the robbers.
She, however, promised to get back to us as soon as she receive the report.
