Robbers Attack Banks in Ondo State



Armed robbery

Armed robbers attacked some commercial banks in Owo, Ondo State yesterday, killing at least  2 people.

According to Punch, one of the banks attacked was Wema Bank. The branch manager and another employee were killed. The individuals were killed after allegedly refusing to cooperate with the robbers.

Eyewitness accounts state that “the robbers came into the town through the Abuja-Owo area at about 5pm, manned strategic entry and exit points into the town and started firing sporadically into the air…Policemen were watching them, but were too scared to challenge the robbers.”

The robbers are said to have been on rampage for two hours, and subsequently escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

    🙁 I swear, many parts of Nigeria are like Gotham city. Criminals just running amok without fear of authority…

    Whatever candidate it is that wins the elections had better be prepared for the work.

    This is sad, really sad.
    Banks and FIs should educate their staff not to argue or prove stubborn to ARMED robbers. People’s lives are not valuable to them. The monies they protected with their lives were adequately insured afterall. Moreso, they eventually took the money and lives as well. So what are we saying……….Life no get duplicate abeg.
    It also goes to us all….please dont drag issues with armed robbers, police. Let them take whatever they want, your life is more valuable. They say when there is life, there is hope!

    And so, Ayodele Tayo’s birthday was yesterday, he got shot and was killed. He doesn’t work in the bank, he was just in his mum’s shop which is close to Wema bank because he came home from school for the elections. R.I.P Tayo, my home town is already in disarray.

    The bankers that died in Wema were experienced enougg to know the monies were insured. They did not refuse to cooperate with the robbers. Damn it! Mad men rampage a town taking innocent young lives going about looking for their honest daily bread. May the souls of Abiodun Olasemojo and Ademola Oyedokun and d unnamed guard rest in peace. Amen
