Police Kill 10, Injure Others In A Shot Out With Daredevils In Delta

In what could be described as a major success against criminals, the Delta State Police Command has embarked on a ‘sting operation’, killing ten suspected armed robbers and kidnappers.

The incident took place on May 21, 2022, as the security forces swam into action following the killings and various attacks on innocent citizens and police personnel in the state by unknown gunmen.

A combined Squad of security operatives in the state at 0500hrs stormed the hideouts of the daredevil in the Kwale axis and engaged the hoodlums in a fierce gun battle.
