The policeman who confronted a group of armed robbers that attacked a Zenith Bank branch in Owerri, has been reported dead..
The Imo State Police Command told Punch that Iboko died two months later while receiving treatment at an intensive care unit from injuries he sustained during the firefight.
The spokesperson for the command, Andrew Enwerem, explained that two other policemen were in the security post during the shootout and also sustained gunshot injuries.
“They were in intensive care for up to two months. The two survived but Iboko died. He was a sergeant and mobile policeman,”
After the video went viral, Nigerians have been wondering what became of the Iboko since the CCTV video did not show what happened after the robbers had escaped.
People have called on the police authorities to recognise and honour him.
