Bank, three Policemen were in the small Security House. They displayed
gallantry by shooting and blasting the car windows, but the robbers
still emerged frim he car unhurt in what many have described as
“Odoeshi”. The robber in blue the officer shot dead moved tactically to

Having shot and proved he was alive, Iboko knew he must flee or wait for
the robbers who didnt fear bullets now come for him. He made the deft

one whose eyes was shattered by the same man he killled. He killed same
man when he came tru the door but lost I trying to run after exposing
his cover. Watch the video again. Spot the robber on blue go behind

Such Gallantry. RIP to the fallen…….. My condolences to the families.
