The robbers approached him to hijack his motorcycle, but didn’t know that the man on the bike was an Amotekun personnel.

It was gathered that after realising he was an Amotekun personnel, they wanted to collect his gun to harm him but when dragging the gun with the Amotekun personnel, a bullet was released and hit one of the armed robbers who was a Fulani man and he died on the spot.
