The Inspector-General of Police Monitoring Squad in collaboration with a renowned hunter, Ali Kwara, have killed three suspected armed robbers in Bauchi State.

‎The Public Relations Officer of the Police Command in the state, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Kamal Datti, said in a statement on Tuesday that the robbers were killed during a shootout.

‎A combined team of the IGP Monitoring Unit in conjunction with a Bauchi renowned hunter, Ali Kwara, trailed three suspected armed robbers to Maladunba forest in Misau Local Government Area, where they were planning to attack unsuspecting members of the public.

‎On sighting the team, the suspects engaged them in a fierce shootout which lasted for some minutes.

“As a result, the three suspected armed robbers sustained fatal injuries and were taken to General Hospital, Misau, and the medical doctor on duty certified them dead,” Datti said.

‎According to him, three AK47 rifles; one locally fabricated double barrel gun; 210 live ammunition of 7.62mm calibre; six cartridges and six empty AK47 riffles magazines were recovered from the suspects.

‎”Other exhibits recovered from the suspects were: a silver-colour Golf 3 Station Wagon with registration number AH 471 GWA; one cutlass; two pairs of police uniform and N16,900,” Datti said.

‎The police spokesman said that investigation into the matter had begun.

‎He also said that the command had recovered illegal firearms and ammunition from‎ bandits and other suspects across the state.

The illegal arms recovery was a concerted effort following the 21-day ultimatum given by the Inspector-General Of Police, Ibrahim Idris, in February.
