Armed Robbers Invade Bank In Ekiti, Cart Away Millions

 A branch of Wema Bank in Iyin Ekiti, Ekiti State was on Friday raided by robbers who carted away millions of naira.

The six-man gang reportedly arrived the town around 3.30 pm and blasted the security doors with explosive devices, suspected to be dynamite.

The operation was said to have lasted about 40 minutes.

The robbery attack came barely 24 hours after the police raised the alarm some bandits were planning to invade the state and wreak havoc.

Witnesses claimed the robbers shot sporadically into the air to scare residents and traders at the nearby market before gaining entry into the banking hall.

The residents were said to have run in different directions, seeking safety.

Vehicles travelling across Ado-Iyin-Aramoko-Efon road had to take a detour to prevent being caught in the web of gunshots.


“In fact, the police disappointed us. They disappointed the people of Iyin today. The robbers robbed for over 40 minutes without any challenge,” The Nation quoted a witness as saying.

“They came in two vehicles, shot into the air and scared the people around away. In fact, those in the nearby market left their commodities and ran for their lives.

“The police station along Igede Ekiti was not up to 500 metres while the police patrol point along Ado Ekiti should be a kilometre away, but none of them responded for over 40 minutes the robbers operated.

“But we thank God nobody was killed, but the agony of the gunshots was too much on the locals”.

Confirming the incident, Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti Command, Sunday Abutu, said the police upon receiving the information immediately visited the troubled spot.

“We got a distress call from Iyin Ekiti about the robbery and we immediately dispatched our men and officers to the place.

“I want to confirm to you that the robbers are being chased as I speak with you and the determination is to effect their arrest.

“We are assuring the people that the hoodlums shall be arrested and brought to justice. Ekiti is not a safe haven for robbers and that we shall continue to sustain”.
