THREE persons parading themselves as operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad have been gunned down in Rivers State.
The suspects were killed by F-SARS at Ogbogoro community in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State following a distress call from an unidentified member of the public.
A source, who did not want his name in print, told our NEWSMEN that the criminals were spotted to be fake security operatives by residents of the area.
It was gathered that a resident of the area called Ozuoba Police Station.
The source said when SARS operatives entered the community, the fake SARS men engaged them in a gun.
The Commander of F-SARS in the state, Mr. Fakorode, who confirmed the development, said his men killed a Three-man robbery gang that disguised as SARS operatives to rob some residents.
Mr.Fakorode said the criminals engaged the SARS men in a gun battle, adding that his men overpowered and killed the hoodlums.
He noted that the same gang had earlier this year killed a taxi driver operating in the area.
“I wish to admonish members of the public that whenever they find operatives of F-SARS extorting money or persons claiming to be from F-SARS, but involved in impersonation, they should please notify F-SARS through these numbers: 08054000001, 08057000002 and 08057000003, as well as Rivers State Police Command’s Control Room numbers: 08098880134 and 08032003514.”
