Robbers Kill Police Officer, Shoot Chinese Cart Away N10m

Gunmen on Friday attacked a Chinese expatriate in Owerri, the Imo state capital, and made away with the sum of N10m he withdrew from a branch of Diamond Bank on Item Street.

The gangsters, three in number, shot the expatriate, believed to be a Chinese contractor working in the state and killed his police orderly, who was an inspector during the operation.

Sources at the scene of the incident disclosed that the foreigner was attacked by the armed guys immediately he came out of the bank.

One of the sources said, "Immediately the foreigner was driven out of the bank premises in his black Toyota, the gunmen who were already waiting double-crossed his vehicle.

“Two of them jumped out of their car and attacked their target.”

It seems police were able to get one of the robbers.
