In their last operation, they came to the end of their road when members of the Gendamarie Force intercepted them as they(the armed robbers) were waiting in ambush to lunch an attack against a transport vehicle. During an exchange of fire between the elements of the National Gendamarie and the armed rubbers, four were shot dead while three were reported to have narrowly escaped.
However, it is reported that some villagers there had earlier tipped the forces of law and order about the armed rubbers’ plan to launch an attack on highway transport vehicles, an act which has become very common. The gendarmes, made up of four males an three females, recently presented the corps of the bandits to the public on national television channels. They have promised to track down the escapees and are sending a warning to others who are still nursing their own plans.
