An armed robbery suspect has been shot dead by his colleague while they were fleeing a robbery scene.
The incident happened in the Oktitipupa area of Ondo State.

Residents gave chase and in an attempt to scare off the mob, one of the hoodlums fired shots into the air but mistakenly hit his colleague in the head.
The witnesses said policemen from the Okitipupa Police Division recovered two guns and a bag snatched from the POS operator from the dead robber.
The other robbers were caught.
