Daredevil robbers,
yesterday evening, attacked a first generation bank in Ifaki-Ekiti,
Ido/Osi Local Government Area of Ekiti State, killing a policeman, just
as another police sergeant was killed in an invasion of a police
station in Kutigi, Niger State.

An eyewitness in the bank attack in Ekiti disclosed that the robbers
stormed the premises of the bank, around 4p.m., when the bank had
already closed for business.

The witness said though the robbers could not gain entry into the bank,
but riddled the front entrance of the bank with bullets and in the
process killed a mobile policeman, who was on duty while his colleague
sustained severe injuries.

The bandits also reportedly destroyed the bank’s Automated Teller
Machine (ATM) gallery located outside the bank.

“Social and economic activities were paralysed for about 30 minutes the
robbery lasted as frightened residents scampered for safety. Vehicles
disappeared from all major roads in the town as many of them turned back
on learning about the robbery.”

The eyewitness added : “It was a terrible experience for us in Ifaki
today, the neighbourhood where the bank is located became a war zone
with endless gun shots fired by the robbers.

“Although they didn’t succeed in entering the bank, they killed one
MOPOL (Mobile Policeman) and his colleague, who was also shot, was taken
to the hospital.

“They shattered the glasses used to decorate the front of the bank and
they destroyed the ATM Point. Although the robbers had left but there is
still panic in the town.”

When called on phone for reaction, the Commissioner of Police, Mr.
Abdullahi Chafe, who confirmed the incident, refused to give further
details.

Chafe said: “I cannot give you details on the incident now because we
are in a meeting. We will give full details in due course.”

In related development, one Sergeant Jibril Abubakar was killed when
armed robbers invaded a police station in the home town of Inspector
General of Police, Kutigi, Niger State.

It was gathered that the gunmen were said to have entered the town at
3:50 am shooting sporadically and made straight for the police division.

The State Police Command ‘s Public Relation Officer, ASP Muhammad
Dan-Inna Abubakar, confirmed the death of the Sergeant in the incident.

According to him, “the gunmen arrived the town at about 3.50a.m.
Wednesday and made straight to the Kutigi police station where they
started shooting sporadically.

The gunmen were however repelled by the men on duty but unfortunately
one Sergeant Jibril Abubakar lost his life during the gun duel”, he
remarked.

He said the Commissioner of Police Dibal Yakadi yesterday paid on the
spot-assessment to the area and has placed N500, 0000 bounty on anyone
who can come up with useful information that would led to arrest of the
attackers.

He further explained that a seven-man investigation team headed by OC
Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS), SP Bako has been constituted to track
down the assailants and bring them to book.

It would be recalled that two months ago, gunmen also invaded on a
divisional police station in Lemu, Gbako local government area of the
state which is just few kilometres to Kutigi, the latest attacked town.
