Two persons have been confirmed dead after robbers attacked a new generation bank in Oye-Ekiti, a university town in Ekiti State.
The daredevil robbers reportedly stormed the town in the afternoon shooting sporadically before they blasted the entrance security door with dynamite.
In the process, a policeman and a young girl were said to have been hit by bullets.
Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Caleb Ikechukwu, who confirmed the incident, said the robbers escaped through the nearby bush, adding that his men were on their trail.
“I can confirm to you that there was a bank robbery. As I am talking to you now, the operatives of SARS (the anti-robbery squad) with a combined team of 33 Police Mobile Force (PMF) are trailing the armed robbers.
“Information at our disposal is that they escaped through the bush path. We are trying to see how we can catch up with them. By God’s grace, we will. Preliminary investigation is ongoing as per the number of causalities.”
On whether a policeman was among the victims, he said: “Like I said, I will issue a statement on that much more later.”
He added: “Anytime there is a deadly armed robbery attack like this, you cannot rule out that there might not be casualty except it takes the intervention of God. The robbers were able to gain entrance through the use of dynamites.”
On whether they carted away money, he said, “I cannot confirm that.”

Dog Kills New Twin Babies After Mother Briefly Leaves The Room
A woman who struggled to conceive for 9 years, has lost of twin babies after her dog mauled them to death out of possible jealousy.
The woman identified as Elaine Novais, 29 left her 26-day-old premature babies at their home in Piripá, in the northeastern state of Bahia, Brazil, last Tuesday, June 23.

A nurse who lived nearby performed first aid on the twins. One died instantly from her injuries and the other later died at Maria Pedreira Barbosa Municipal Hospital after going into cardiac arrest.
Mrs Novais collapsed from shock after the death of her babies and she had to be sedated at the hospital. Mrs Novais and her husband Regis, 32, had struggled for nine years to have children.
The dog, described as “docile”, is believed to have become jealous after not receiving as much attention since the birth of the babies.
A family member claimed the dog “was left out in a way, and it no longer had the attention and affection of its owners provided before”, reports The Sun.
‘That could have caused some kind of jealousy and led the dog to attack the children.”
Anne and Analú died one day before their due date, having arrived a month early via cesarean section.
Police are investigating the deaths, but are yet to take testimonies from the devastated parents.
