One armed robber was killed while 2 others were badly injured on Wednesday by local vigilante providing security around St Maria Goretti college Junction, Upper Sokponba in Benin City.
Upper Sokponba has been the den of dare devil robbers and cultists who in the last week left over 35 persons dead in the city.
The locality is also notorious for broad daylight Car jacking and open stealing of mobile devices and cash from citizens boarding commercial transport.
In a viral video, it was gathered that the robbers set out to rob in a vehicle they drove in but met their waterloo when the vigilante accosted them.
In an attempt to escape while abandoning their vehicle which they reportedly snatched at gun point elsewhere, they shot at the vigilante who replied as one of them died instantly and 2 were wounded.
Recall that the Police in Edo last week facilitated the creation of a 70 man strong vigilante for Ikpoba Okha local government. St Maria Goretti is located here.
