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.”
