The Police in Delta have confirmed the death of a suspected robber, Ugbaudu Williams, 31, who was among robbers who attacked a community in Ijomi, in Ethiope Local Government area of the state.

He was allegedly shot by “his partner in crime’’. The cause of the shooting was, however, not made known as one of the armed robbers who allegedly shot Williams and left him almost dead fled.

DSP Edafe Bright, the Acting Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, confirmed the development to newsmen on Friday in Warri.

Bright said that the deceased and one other now at large went on a robbery mission on May 5, at Ijomi village near Oghara, Ethiope West Local Government Area of the state.

He explained that the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Oghara Division, received a distress call on the development and immediately deployed patrol team to the scene.

“The suspects on sighting the police ran into the nearby bush which was later combed by a combined team of police and Vigilante.

“Williams, a notorious criminal was found fatally shot on his right hand and seriously bleeding.

“He confessed that he was shot by one Desmond, his partner in crime.

“Williams was taken to his house for a search where a locally made gun, two live cartridges and one expended cartridge were recovered.

“He was rushed to the General Hospital, Oghara, for treatment where he gave up the ghost,’’ he said.

Bright said that the police had launched a manhunt for the fleeing suspect who was believed to have been among the armed robbers who had tormented the citizenry in Delta State for some time. (NAN)
