 Stray bullet hits fruit seller as police engage armed robbers in battle

Abia State Police Command intercepted an armed robbery gang that specialised in robbing bank customers after they have made withdrawals in Umuahia, the state capital.

The state police spokesman, Geoffrey Ogbonna, confirmed the incident, saying that happened on Thursday and a fruit seller was suffered bullet wound during the battle at the Bank Road.

 He said that the hoodlums had trailed a bank customer who had made a withdrawal at the branch of the United Bank for Africa (UBA) on Bank Road, Umuahia in Abia State.

Subsequently, the robbers were intercepted by a police patrol team, leading to a gun duel between the robbers and the police. Unfortunately, a fruit seller was hit by a stray bullet.

According to eyewitnesses, the victim was a fruit seller and was immediately taken to the Federal Medical Centre, Umuahia.
