Dare devil tricycle (keke) armed robbers who have been terrorising Nkpor junction (round-about) Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State, Monday, reportedly robbed at about 6 p.m. thereby causing stampede among travellers and road side traders.
No fewer than 10 people were said to have been robbed of their cash, GSM handsets and other valuables by the men of the underworld.
The first gang of the robbers who numbered about five rode on tricycle with registered commercial colour when it stormed the scene.
They were said to have robbed at gunpoint, shooting indiscriminately to scare anybody that dared them.
A victim who pleaded anonymity said, “The armed robbers robbed people on daily basis and the police are not here to challenge them.
“Since the killing of two policemen here at Nkpor junction about a month now, the police have run away from here and that is why the robbers have field day.
“They rob at will and people run away on hourly basis every day because the police are not there. Road side traders no longer shut shops at the normal closing hours but earlier because of attack.”
Also a shop owner who simply identified himself as Okoh said, “My brother, we are in trouble here; they rob us daily and nobody is challenging them, even yesterday they stabbed some people with breaking bottles. (Daily Independent)
