A vigilance group, yesterday, killed one suspected robber and arrested three others during a robbery operation in Ubiaja, Esan South East Local Government Area of Edo State.
It was learnt that the robbers attacked the Ogbeide Medical Centre in Ubiaja and responding to the distress call raised while the robbery operation was going on, the vigilantes, led by Chief Oniha, immediately mobilized to the scene and engaged the robbers in a gun battle leaving one dead in the process while the three others were arrested.
It was, however, gathered that the dead robber hailed from Irrua, Esan Central Local Government Area, while the others who were arrested are Ubiaja.
The remains of the robber and those arrested were said to have been taken to the police station in the locality.
The Edo State Commissioner of Police, Johnson Babatunde Kokumo, thanked the vigilantes for bracing up to the challenge.
