On Tuesday evening, police are said to have responded to a robbery at Lexo Petrol Station where it alleged that five people drove in a Touareg Volkswagen vehicle at around 8:30pm and immediately brandished pistols and an AK-47 rifle to the personal operating the facility.

Other reports had indicated that police had been tipped of an emerging robbery by some gangsters planning to rob the petrol station and had laid ambush.

“Police laid an ambush and challenged the criminals but they started firing at the police officers before being overpowered and gunned down. Five of them were killed,” Juja DCIO Mr. Ali Samatar said.

On that fateful night, Juja police gunned down the five suspected gangsters along the Thika Superhighway while it alleged that one escaped with the AK-47 rifle.

However, the drama in the incidence has quickly changed and it is now guns on the police after the law society of Kenya and the independent police oversight commission called on investigations to unravel how police responded to the scene.

Unidentified assailants shot dead a lawyer outside a shopping mall in Tagum City, Davao del Norte on Wednesday night, an attack blamed by the victim’s family on the government’s war on drugs.

Senior Insp. Anjanette Tirador, Tagum City police spokesperson, identified the victim as Rex Jasper Lopoz, 41, a resident of Nabunturan town, Compostela Valley.

Police said the victim was about to get into his car at the parking area of the City Mall shopping center along the Davao-Butuan highway in Visayan Village when assailants shot him at 7:21 p.m.

The victim collapsed, prompting his companion, identified as Danny Santos, to drive him to the nearest hospital.

Santos thought he had a heart attack but was declared dead upon arrival due to a bullet wound in the back, according to Chief Insp. Jason Baria, Southern Mindanao police regional spokesperson

A mall security guard allegedly heard a single gunshot and saw the victim fall, Baria said, adding responding police did not recover any bullet casings or other pieces of evidence at the scene.
