The two – Hamidu Umaru and Haadu – were killed in a gun battle with the police, a statement from the law enforcement body said.

Four others, Saaju Bukari, Bertor Saabi, Ali Amadu and Isaad Seidu have also been arrested in connection with similar offences following an intelligence-led operation by the special anti-robbery taskforce.
