The robbers had blocked a Port Harcourt- bound bus and dispossessed the passengers of their money and other valuables before they were chased by men of the Anti-Robbery Squad attached to the Ogebere Ijebu Police Division, in the Ijebu East local Government area of the state.
When journalists visited the police division in Ogbere on Thursday, many of the passengers were seen waiting to identify their valuables.
Also parked in front of the police station was a white 34-seater passenger bus that was attacked, belonging to Chisco Investment, with number plate, AAA 649 XN. One of the victims, Donatus Adie, said, “The robbers waylaid us at J4 Junction, in Ogbere, around 1.08am (Thursday).”
He said the robbers operated for more than two hours.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the police got information that robbery was going on and the Divisional Police Officer of Ogbere division, Agunbiade Adeyinka, led his men to the scene.
He said two of the robbers were shot dead while the third escaped.
