Lagos State Police spokesman, Hundeyin, who confirmed the incident in a statement, said the police trailed the hoodlums to their hideout at Ajegunle, where a gun battle occurred.
According to the PPRO, “Daredevil robbers engaged operatives of the Area B Command, Apapa, of the Lagos State Police Command in a gun duel in a bid to escape arrest. The robbers, however, fell to the superior firepower of the police operatives.
The robbers, Sodiq ’m’ aka Foreigner, recently released from prison and Habeeb ‘m’ aka Kiki, who have both been wanted for terrorizing Ajegunle and environs were trailed to their hideout in Ajegunle, where they met their Waterloo.
One Beretta pistol, one locally made revolver pistol with four rounds of 9mm live ammunition and one expended shell of ammunition were recovered from the robbers.
The Lagos State Police Command urges youths in particular to desist from crimes, as the long arm of the law will always catch up with criminals no matter how long it takes.”
