Armed robbers shot and killed two people and injured a police officer in a roadblock on the Okene-Lokoja-Abuja Expressway.
The incident, which took place on Saturday, caused confusion on the lane, with motorists abandoning their cars, while some of the commuters seeking safety in nearby homes were refused.
It was learned that the two killed were brothers and sisters.
