Robbers attack residents, snatch bag containing faeces



Some suspected armed robbers terrorising
residents of Asaba, Ibusa and its environs in
Delta State, on Wednesday snatched a
cellophane bag containing human excreta and a
N200 note in Okpanam community, near Asaba.
The hoodlums were said to have earlier shot a
motorist who allegedly blocked their entrance
into Okpanam community from the Asaba-Benin
Expressway.
But in a swift reaction, security operatives
attached to the Delta State Police Command
gunned down two of the armed robbers at the T-
Junction around the Asaba-Benin Expressway
during a gun battle.
Southern City News learnt that the robbers came
in a Toyota Camry without any number plate.
It was also gathered that the robbers shot
sporadically into the air before they descended
on a nursing mother, Mrs. Benedict Omorah, who
held a black cellophane bag containing her
baby’s excreta and a N200 note.
Sources said Omorah had noticed them, but tried
to flee the scene before they noticed her.
They reportedly caught up with her at a corner,
and at gunpoint snatched the bag from her.
Omorah said, “I was going to a private clinic
with my baby when the armed men accosted me
and snatched the bag containing my baby’s
excreta and a N200 note. I was shocked the way
they pointed the gun at me. Afterwards, they
zoomed off in their car.”
Investigations by our correspondent revealed
that armed robbers had laid siege to Okpanam
community, which was also grappling with high
incidence of rape, especially of married women.
The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer,
Celestina Kalu, while confirming the incident,
said the gang had robbed some motorists along
the expressway before moving into Okpanam
community.
He said the police patrol team at the state police
command ran into the robbers, which resulted in
a gun battle.
He said, “Unfortunately for them, the police
responded and two of the six-man gang were
killed on the spot, while others fled in their car
into the community where they snatched the
cellophane bag containing excreta from the
nursing mother.”
She said the police would do everything possible
to arrest the fleeing robbers, calling on residents
of the community to always report to the police
any suspicious persons in the area.
