A robbery took place in the Union Bank in Ilawe Ekiti, headquarters of Ekiti Southwest Local Government Area of Ekiti State and lasted for over one hour.
Armed robbers who broke into Union Bank killed two people during the operation.
A policeman and a bank worker were killed in the attack. The policeman was reportedly an orderly attached to one of the council bosses in the state. Another bank worker was also shot by the bandits in the arm but it wasn’t fatal.
According to sources, the armed robbers invaded the bank beside Alawe’s palace and broke the security door with the aid of a dynamite before entering the banking hall. The dynamite also blew up a blue color Toyota Camry parked close to the bank building.
The armed bandits succeeded in making away with an unspecified amount of money.
Sadly, the bank staff, David Adeyemi Otitoju, that was shot dead only welcomed his child two weeks before the unfortunate incident occurred and was buried yesterday, Thursday.
