Nigeria Police Kill Three, Foil Attack On Plane

Three suspected armed robbers were on Monday shot dead by operatives of the Nigeria Police Force during a shootout at the busy UTC Junction in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

One of the hoodlums, who escaped being killed by a special team from Inspector General of Police, said they had planned to attack a plane belonging to a popular airline in the country.

It was also learnt that the suspects were forced to stop by the traffic light as they queued behind other vehicles waiting for their turn to get the green light to move.
One of the suspects, according to the eyewitness, alighted from the car and opened fire on some policemen at the junction.

It was gathered that attempts made by the armed robbers to escape after noticing the superior fire power of the policemen proved futile as three of them were gunned down while the fourth sustained gunshot injuries.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the incident, adding that the IGP Intelligence Team intercepted the armed robbers following a tip-off.

Omoni said, “On interrogation, the suspect said they were on a mission to attack an Arik plane.”

Omoni, who identified the injured suspect as Peter James, said he confessed to being a member of a gang that killed a police corporal during the APC rally in Okrika in 2015.
