The Akwa Ibom State Police Command’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, weekend, killed three suspected robbers, who specialised in robbing students and residents of the University of Uyo, UNIUYO, community around Ikpa Road, Ikpa Lane, Idak Okpo and adjoining areas.

It was gathered that the SARS operatives from Ikot Akpanabia, killed the three suspected robbers, after they had dispossessed students of laptops, phones, cash and other valuables around the students’ community.

IBOM REPORTERS learnt that the criminals launched an attack as soon as they sighted the SARS operatives, who responded with superior fire-power around the Saint Joseph Primary School, Ikpa Road, and chased them into a ravine.

Sporadic and random shootings into the ravine, according to Imo Essien, a local vigilante, led to the killing of one robber instantly, while the remains of two others, who escaped with bullet wounds, were recovered later by the locals around the jungle by the Cornelia Connelly College Junction.
