Residents overpower armed robbers!!!

The suspect

These guys are so heartless....if i was there, i would have definitely thrown in a punch! i hope they face the full wrath of the law.

Residents of Asubiaro in Osogbo area of Osun State on Monday overpowered and apprehended one of the two-member robbery gang that snatched N90, 000 at gunpoint from a man.
According to an eyewitness, one of the robbers suddenly alighted from the motorcycle and cornered the cooperative official. The eyewitness said, “It was like a movie. Some members of the cooperative society were at the gate waiting for the man when one of the two men on the okada jumped down and pointed a gun at the man.
“He pointed the gun at the head of the man and threatened to blow off his brains. The man handed over the money in a large polythene bag to the robber.
“The robber pocketed his gun in order for him to be able to carry the bag briskly. It was when people at the gate saw that he had pocketed his gun and was about running to the waiting bike that they overwhelmed him.
“When the guy on the motorcycle saw that they had overpowered him, he took off on the bike.”
The Commissioner of Police, Osun State Command, Mrs. Kalafite Adeyemi, confirmed the incident.
She said, “We have charged the case to court. The victim had gone to collect the money from the bank; he raised the alarm when he was attacked. One of the robbers fell and he was overpowered.”
