    Robbers attack bank in Ekiti, kill four

    Suspected armed robbers on Monday killed four persons during an attack on a bank in Ijero-Ekiti.

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

    They were said to have made away with 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.

    The raid of the bank in Ijero was coming barely three months after a similar incident at a first generation bank in Igede Ekiti, in which a police man was killed.

    The 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 5:30pm.
    Ikechukwu said: “There was casualty. They succeeded by using dynamite to gain access into the banking hall and the robbery took place around 5:30pm on Monday.”

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