Hafiz Inuwa, the Commissioner of Police in the state, who briefed newsmen on the incident at the Atakpa Police Station, said the robbers invaded the filling station on Sunday morning.

“Some of these armed robbers are giving us problems in Calabar municipality. These set of robbers were caught up in a gun battle with the police shortly after they robbed a filling station in Atu area of Calabar South.

They had a shoot-out with the police and our men were able to gun down five of them. These were the same gang that we already have their profile. We have been on the watch out for them because they were the same people that snatched two AK47 rifles from our men.

This is a pointer to the fact that the police and other security agencies will not rest until the state is free from all forms if criminalities,” he said.

Inuwa said that people who decides to take up arms against law abiding citizens in the state would have themselves to blame because the police was out for “fire-for-fire”.

“Election is coming, the Calabar carnival is around the corner; we are not going to spare any criminal in the state. I am calling on parents to be on the watch out on their wards because taking arms against anybody will not be tolerated,” he warned.

  20. Wow, the Nigeria police force deserves some accolades…bravo! These guys hav lived a wasteful life…no mercy on their victims, no pity for them for ending their lives lik that of a chicken..

  21. When anybody decides to engage in gun duel with police officers, then that person must be a criminal and must be ready to take anything that comes out of it. If it continues this way, the fear factor will increase, where these hoodlums will be rest assured that there are capable hands around to handle them. Good one from the Nigerian police force, it should be extended to other parts of the country.

  22. Yes, any criminal caught should not be spared. Parents watch out for your children and wards. They even had the audacity to engage in a gun battle with the police. The police has done well by killing them.
