God forsaken people!
I pray the other gang members at large be apprehended soon.
Kudos to the plain clothed security agent who brought down one of the robbers.

I love how the police gun one down. But who knows the fate of that police officer??

He survived


But you wrote that a customer was shot dead but previously said only the robber was killed in the incident. Pls clarify.

I was lost/confused wit d news headlines too!


The policeman later died at FMC Owerri hospital.


Please confirmed Nigerian lost the mopol


Hope it’s not another eyewitness account? You should confirm with his obituary for saying he did. Because from the video, he was still shooting back at the guy that followed him, the guy had to duck and enter inside the vehicle….. if the police man was heavily wounded, he couldn’t have shot back to restrain him from advancing

Thank God he did


The guy na hero oo


The Mopol survived. Praise God

The robber that got killed is a mumu.see how he was moving as if he is RObocop.The hero mopol got lucky.He showed a lot of inexperience.He was in perfect position to end robbery with just 3 trigger pulls.Fear in that situation could have cost him his life.i noticed when he was hit on the leg as he was shooting and running.He was lucky the robber that tried to kill him doesn’t even know how to use the gun he came to rob with..

This is pure action likey

You concluded all these from what you just read?


I wonder oooh! Are you sure. …….??


Actually I concluded same from watching the video.

The police man showed fear. I do not blame him. And he is lucky that like him, the robbers don’t know how to shoot.

Last conclusion, police use cheap ammo. Those bullets could not even pierce the body of the elantra sufficiently.


My thoughts exactly!!


The policeman might have been had some fear but the move he made was the best move though risky. He had only a few seconds after gunning down that dude to either escape, or kill the other 3…or meet their vengeance. Remember he was in a corner…if you’ve ever handled a gun you’d know that hitting 4 moving targets in 10 seconds is no joke. Forget what you saw Van Damme do…. This is reality.


The fact is, the policeman needn’t have run. He had an advantage. He was in an enclosed place and dark too. He had gunned down one. All he needed was to remain in his hiding and wait for anyone who attempted to come in. He would have killed them all if they had made any attempt to reach him. He seems rather inexperienced.


u most be high on Weed.u think say dis na film were u can make analysis
[email protected]

Do u knw if he still have more bullet i think that is the reason he ran away for his dear life

Sefe Sagie

Yes Ayor, I agree with you. The Police man should never have come out. I think d thief stopped shooting at him when he was sure he had no access to proper use of his gun. I believe d Policeman didn’t survive that ordeal.


the police man did what an experienced forceman should…he is considering his bullet and he can’t be in an enclose place for gun battle…if his bullet finish he is finish so he need movable environment. robbery Is getting out of hand…. Rip

Lady B

Uncle Babs thanks for the analysis, even though i was not able to watch the video, i still understood the story from your write up.


Then you misunderstood it all…because what he typed no be am.

We need your protection Lord….


Everyday for the thiefs and one day for the owner


That mopol officer is brave.. They should arrest the driver of the victim, he probably gave them info.. So because of money they killed the man now.. and that idiot thief lost his life??? SMH

Gud job n.p.f

Agile Mopols….nice one to the Nigerian police force…RIP to the dead.


Chilling footage, James bond 007.

Nice job,God tank u for ur assistance

Who saw how that woman in red and gateman ran away?

Oyaaaaaaa rip

Ali Soma Jnr

Nice job for that police man.

The rate of crime s really getting out of hand


Evil never pays.

The Police man that shot the dead robber should be promoted. He was a brave Police officer.


Has any noticed how the shot robber fell without his gun? Probably it’s the gun the mopol ran out with.


Kudos to dat police officer, if he is still alive he should be promote to anoda rank, God really exposed de rubbers, dey didnt even enjoy de money.


They caught two. Remaining one.

Olorun sa anu wa ooo


Pls the policeman did not die ooooo ooooo make unah no kill am with mouth He is very healthy and still on duty.


wondering why people say with such affirmation he died….please can you confirm that he is alive with how you know…i really love to know he is still alive.


U people don’t even talk about the other police that first came out seconds to arrival of the robber.


The police would have alert them in first place, a least hiding and patient he would have gone than up to 3


And again is not surpose to come out of the hiding position, even if he ran out of armonation he can still make use of the guy he has gone ryful for finishing job, is coming out allow the guy in the car to come out fully


Nawa ooo, may God help us ooo
