The body of a suspected armed robber was found lying in a pool of his blood at Oshodi bus stop, along Agege Motor Road, Lagos, this morning.

The corpse was identified as that of a member of an armed robbery gang which invaded the area at about 5 a.m., shooting sporadically into the air and dispossessing passers-by of their belongings.

P.M.News could not establish who actually killed the man, but a trader selling wares in the area said he was killed by a police patrol team which came to rescue the robbery victims.

“Luck ran against him when policemen came and engaged his gang in a gun battle. He was the only one killed while others took to their heels,” he said.

It was gathered that a pistol was recovered from him but no policeman was around to comment on the incident. People, however, were seen gathering in groups, discussing the incident, praying that other members of the armed robbery gang would be caught some day. His corpse was still at the spot as at the time of filing this report.
