Member of a robbery gang in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, was shot dead by his colleague while they were sharing their loot of the day.
It was gathered that on 18th February 2019 a six-man robbery gang led by one Ogilivie who is still at large burgled a house and stole a generator plant which they sold.
Reports learnt that in the course of sharing the money, one of the robbers, Gielaemi Ben ‘m’ 19 yrs, protested that he was given the smaller amount and the principal suspect, Oginivie, shot him dead afterwards.
