No robbery attack on Asaba Shoprite, says Police

Zanna M. Ibrahim, Delta State COMPOL

The Delta state Police command has debunked claims that Shoprite, one of the outfits inside the Asaba mall was attacked by armed robbers.

Police Public Relations Office, (PPRO), Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mr. Andrew Aniamaka told banneronlinenews.com this afternoon that it was a wrong information passed on to the public, saying there was nothing like an armed robbery attack on shoprite.

He explained that there was a misunderstanding between a customer and one of the cashiers which led to a scuffle, and later degenerated when the customer resorted to violence, leading to his manhandling of a police officer that intervened to try to keep the peace. In the process the customer, Aniamaka said tore the uniform of the policeman, and the scuffle escalated.

“There was no armed robber attack on the Shoprite; the place is calm and business is going on as usual. It is wrong information to say that there was a robbery attack at Shoprite. No, there was never such a thing, DSP Aniamaka said.
