4 killed as robbers invade Ekiti bank

By - - [ ]
Two policemen, a bank security guard and an aged man were, yesterday, killed and several others wounded when robbers attacked a bank in Ijero-Ekiti in Ijero Local Government Area of Ekiti State.

It was gathered that the robbers invaded the community through Aramoko Road in an ambulance with a casket filled with weapons and escaped through the same route after attacking a Police station in the town, where they killed two policemen.

They reportedly moved to the bank, where the chief security guard was shot at the Automated Teller Machine, ATM, gallery of the bank.

An eyewitness disclosed that the robbers announced their arrival with gunshots, which sent residents scampering for safety.

The bandits reportedly blew the bank’s security door open with dynamite to gain access into the banking hall.

They were said to have made away with an unspecified amount of money during the raid, which was said to have lasted for about an hour.

The heavy shooting by the robbers paralysed transportation, economic and social activities.

Police statement

Police Public Relations Officer in Ekiti State, Mr. Caleb Ikechukwu, who said he was still at the branch of the bank “to gather reliable information on the armed robbery incident,” said the attack occurred at about 5:30p.m.

According to him, “there were casualties. They succeeded by using dynamite to gain access into the banking hall and the robbery took place around 5:30p.m. on Monday(yesterday).

“There was no casualty on the side of the bank, while there were one or two on the side of the police.”
