Three police officers and four others were reportedly killed during a Bullion van robbery in Ibadan, Oyo State.
The unfortunate incident happened when armed robbers ambushed a bullion van delivering money to a bank at Idi Ape Ibadan in the Ibadan North East Local Government area of Oyo state.
The armed robbers, who were believed to be dressed in police uniform, followed the bullion van to Idi Ape Ibadan and began shooting sporadically, according to multiple reports.
It should be recalled that a similar ambush attack on a bullion van occured in 2008, in which scores of people were horribly murdered.
However, eyewitnesses in Idi Ape Ibadan said that the armed robbers fired several bullets at the escort van in an attempt to stop it and steal the money.
