The DPO immediately led his patrol team to the scene where they met the robbers attacking one Agba Enoch.
The spokesman of the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, on Monday told newsmen that the team engaged the hoodlums in a gun battle and at the end, two members of the gang were killed, while others escaped with gunshot wounds.
According to him, items recovered from them were: three handsets, one mock gun, one electric clipper, three ATM cards and one blood-stained cutlass.
He said one Adekunle Adewale who was seriously wounded on the head was taken to a hospital for medical attention.
