The unidentified businessman owns a supermarket in Uyo, the capital city of Akwa-Ibom state. He became a hero after he was said to have intentionally engaged in hot pursuit and eventually rammed his personal SUV into the tricycle that some armed robbers were using to flee after robbing the man’s very own supermarket.

Ban Ifj OsisiOkhumu, a Facebook user shared the full story on his page as follows;

“So it happened yesterday evening 25 June 2019, In Uyo. Armed robbers stormed a supermarket along the IBB way .
Successfully carted away valuables and the day’s sales . Got into their Keke tricycle (as seen in the picture) and escaped .
Unknown to them , the owner of the supermarket was inside his black SUV (as seen in the picture damaged ) and observing the robbers rob and leaving .

Immediately they left happily, he started his SUV engine and gave them a hot chase. In less than a kilometer from the robbery spot, he forcefully with all powers to the throttle like his foot was glued to it , he slammed from behind and left the side of the keke, straight into the escaping robbers in their brand new getaway Keke. Thereby serious causing the Keke and it’s robbers occupants to summersault several times. Unfortunately, the SUV driver lost control due to the speed and force he used to knock off and out completely, the Keke and its armed robbers. 

The SUV ended up in the fence of the nearby school . Badly destroyed too. As for the robbers, in the confusion they least expected, people rushed to the scene and the SUV ( supermarket owner) raised an alarm which saw two of the robbers being caught on the spot and on the ground . 

It was like a James Bond movie in life replay! 

At times, it pays to be daring after weighing the situation on the ground”.
