Armed Robbers Attack WEMA Bank, Cart Away Millions

The robbery, which lasted at least 40 minutes, took place today, 2 October, 2020 at about 3:30pm.

The six-man robbers arrived the town around 3.30pm and blasted the security doors with explosive devise suspected to be dynamite.

The robbers were said to have 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 ran in different directions due to the severity of the gunshots, which sources said had sent jitters round the spines of those around.
