The policeman who confronted a group of armed robbers that attacked a Zenith Bank branch in Owerri, has been reported dead..
The police, who revealed his name to be Sergeant Chukwudi Iboko, an officer with the Mobile Police Squad, revealed he died two months later from injuries sustained during the robbery..
The CCTV video that has since gone viral showed how Iboko shot at the car used by the robbers as soon as they entered the bank premises.
Iboko had emerged from the security post shooting and running to take cover. One of the robbers followed and shot at him. The robbers later retreated with what looked like a bag containing money they reportedly collected from a customer whom they had trailed to the bank.
The Imo State Police Command told Punch that Iboko died two months later while receiving treatment at an intensive care unit from injuries he sustained during the firefight.

The spokesperson for the command, Andrew Enwerem, explained that two other policemen were in the security post during the shootout and also sustained gunshot injuries.
“They were in intensive care for up to two months. The two survived but Iboko died. He was a sergeant and mobile policeman,”
After the video went viral, Nigerians have been wondering what became of the Iboko since the CCTV video did not show what happened after the robbers had escaped.
People have called on the police authorities to recognise and honour him.
