Four persons have been killed and several others injured after suspected robbers attacked a popular commercial bank in Offa, Kwara State.
A resident of the area, identified as Bosun posted on social media, saying no security personnel confronted the robbers throughout the operation.
The robbers, she said, shot sporadically forcing residents and businesses to close shop in the Sanni Aba area of the town.
“Those of us close to the banks were indoors, while some were taking cover elsewhere. Heavy gunshots were heard and dynamites were being used.
“The operation lasted for more than one hour. When we went out after the operation, four persons were already killed,” Bosun wrote on Thursday.
Another social media user, revealed how his siblings escape from the robbery scene.
“They saw four people killed. And they would have been killed because after they finished the operation few of them opinned that they should release gun fire on them (my siblings and those close to them), but a man who seemed to be the boss told them they have little time left and had no option than to exit immediately.
According to images obtained by BreezeReporters, the banks security doors were broken down. Cars and other valuables were also destroyed.
The Kwara state police command is yet to release statement on the incident as at the time of filing this report.
