A yet-to-be identified armed robber has been killed by troops of Operation Safe Haven during a gun duel in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau.

It was also learnt that two others escaped with gunshot wounds during the gun duel.

This was contained in a statement released on Thursday by the Commander of the Security Outfit, Maj. Gen. Dominic Onyemulu.

According to the commander, troops on patrol received a distress call at about 11:45pm on Wednesday, March 17, that armed robbers were operating at Kutaya Street, in Jengre area of Bassa.

The commander further stated that the troops swiftly mobilized to the scene where a shop owner, one Mr Reuben was robbed of his personal belongings.

In the process, one of the armed robbers was neutralized, while the other two others managed to escape with serious gunshot injuries.

He explained that one AK-47, a fabricated rifle, an automatic pistol, 16 of 9mm rounds ammunition and a cell phone, were recovered from the scene.

Onyemelu, who assumed duty on March 11, as the 13th Commander of the operation, assured residents of the state of its determination to ensuring that lasting peace was achieved across its joint operational areas.

He, however, called on members of the public to support and cooperate with the task force to succeed.
