Afunanya said two of the accomplices were killed while an officer sustained several injuries from gunshots, The Cable added.
Part of his report revealed:
“The gun duel which lasted for an hour offered IGBOHO the chance to escape. Sunday ADEYEMO a.k.a Sunday IGBOHO is now on the run. IGBOHO may run as far as he can. He may hide as long as he wants.
"He might have attacked security operatives as his strength carried him. But this will be the end of his shenanigans. Soon, he will not have a hiding place. His strength will sure fail him. And the law will catch up with him. The law may be slow. But it will be steady."
The secret police announced to citizens that a manhunt has already begun for the agitator.
