According to him, upon the distress call, the DPO Agbado division, SP Awoniyi Adekunle, quickly led his men to the scene where it was discovered that while the armed robbers were escaping after robbing one Bashirat Anibire, a POS operator of her bag containing the cash sum of N400,000 and her itel phone, the robbers shot and killed Popoola, and also injured one Faleye Oluwaseun.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the robbers who are three in number came on a motorcycle without light at about 7: p.m and attacked Basirat Anibire who was just closing from her POS shop.
“The victim managed to escape from the scene, but while running away with her 7yrs old son, the robbers got hold of the son which made the woman run back in other to save her son. It was in the process that the robbers were able to snatch her bag and the phone.
“The shout for help from the woman attracted the youth of the area who started pursuing the robbers while a distress call was also made to the police. It was in their bid to escape from the scene that the deceased and one other were shot by the robbers.”
