The alleged killers of the Dangote truck driver who were said to be enforcing the stay-at-home order of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN) have reportedly met their Waterloo as they were reportedly gunned down by police operatives in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
The slain IPOB/ESN members said to be ten in number had reportedly infiltrated Delta State to drive home their stay-at-home order on Monday, and were in the early hour of today gunned down during a breathtaking encounter with the police.
A source said about 5 AK47 assault rifles loaded with magazines were recovered from the hoodlums who the police had since termed kidnappers.
According to sources, the men had operated Wednesday somewhere in Ugbolu on the outskirts of Asaba, killing a Dangote truck driver for not obeying their directive.
The Commissioner of Police Delta State Command, CP Muhammed Ari Ali had warned the IPOB/ESN members to quickly vacate the state on the ground that Delta State was not part of the South-Eastern states where they can operate freely and go scotch free or meet their waterloo.
CP Ali had assured Deltans that the Police under his watch were capable and able to provide the needed security for their lives and property; advising them to go about their lawful businesses.
But today’s encounter it was learnt took place in the early hour after the men ran into an ambush by the police and a fierce gun battle ensued during which 10 of them were liquidated and five arrested with insignia of their belief and agitation.
