A former police officer-turned armed robber, Collins Ezenwa alias Emoney and members of his gang were shot dead at the weekend.
The suspects were killed by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) during a robbery operation in Imo State on Saturday, January 27.
According to reports, EMoney left the Nigerian Police Force early last year under the pretence of going to Malaysia in search of greener pastures.
He returned to his city late last year, a very rich man, claiming to have made lots of money in Malaysia. He got married in a grand wedding ceremony on November 11.
