Car Snatcher Killed In Jigawa

Jigawa State Police command last Thursday killed a suspected armed robber and recovered a Honda Accord (End Of Discussion) snatched at FCT Abuja along Kiyawa, Buji area of the state.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Kayode Theophilus disclosed this while showing journalists the body of the suspect and the car recovered, saying that the police got intelligence report that the suspect, who snatched the car from Abuja, was on his way to Jigawa to get a buyer for it.

Theophilus noted that the operation was successful, with the assistance of the popular hunter, Alhaji Ali Kwara, adding that an operative disguised as a buyer and the suspect decided to bring the car with registration number RSH 748 SG down to Jigawa state in an attempt to sell the car.

According to him “while our informant was closely monitoring him, a team of anti-robbery personnel,  supported by Alhaji Ali Kwara, accosted the armed robber along the road and pretended to be a buyer of the car.

In the course of bargaining, the armed robber realised the intention of the men to grab him, so he brought out a gun and started shooting at my men. As a result, the armed robber was gunned down”.
The police boss maintained that the items discovered from the armed robber included the car, one Barreta pistol with four rounds of live ammunition and the sum of N5,500.

He solicited the support and cooperation of the public through giving information to the police about happenings in  their communities, for the protection of lives and property in the state.
The commissioner warned those with criminal minds to leave Jigawa state or be apprehended.
