A police officer has been confirmed dead and many persons wounded in a bank robbery in Otun Ekiti, the headquarters of Moba Local Government Area of the state.
The deceased was said to be a security official with a branch of the Bank located at the heart of the ancient town.
The bank invasion was coming barely two years after some suspected armed robbers invaded the town and killed four men.
A resident of the town, Sola Atolagbe told newsmen that the robbers, stormed the bank around 5:00pm on Thursday shot sporadically into the air to scare those within the vicinity of the bank.
The multiple sources said the robbers forced their way into the banking hall with dynamite and carted away huge amount of money stacked in ‘Ghana must go bag’.
According to Reports the bank staff and customers who came for transaction at the bank were seen scampering for safety before the intervention of security agents.
The Police Public Relations officer, Ekiti Command, Sunday Abutu, who confirmed the incident, said the robbers attacked the bank with dynamite but denied that the robbers gained entry into the bank.
Abutu further explained that men of the command and military men attached to the area engaged the robbers in a gun duel which he said resulted into the loss of one of the mobile police at the scene.
He then urged members of the public to go about their normal business while assuring them of the police readiness to protect their lives and property at all times.
