Two persons were killed by armed robbers while no fewer than five others sustained injuries during a bank robbery in Ikirun, Ifelodun Local Government Area of the state of Osun, in western Nigeria.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the robbery lasted half an hour at the Ikirun branch of a new generation bank.

It was learnt that security agents attached to the bank and residents took to their heels on sighting the armed robbers.

An eye witness told NAN that the robbers, whose number could not be ascertained, arrived the bank on new Inisha road at about 4.00.p.m. and carted away an unspecified amount of money.

The hoodlums were said to have shot sporadically into the air in order to scare away people at the vicinity.

Mrs Folasade Odoro, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the incident but said the command would release details as soon as the report was available.

  1. MALLAM SHEHU

    A ROBBERY TOOK 30 MINUTES AND THE ROBBERS WERE NOT CAUGHT, ONLY IN NIGERIA. EVEN IF THE POLICE WERE ALERTED ON TIME THEY WOULD NOT COME TO FACE THE CRIMINALS BECAUSE THEY ARE BUNCH OF COWARDS THE HAVE PLEASURE IN BULLYING INNOCENT CITIZENS AND EXTORTING MONEY FROM INNOCENT PEOPLE.

  2. This is Xmas period.More armed roberies may be in the offing in various parts of
    the south West section of the country.The Govt of the Stae of Osun Had provided all kinds of weapons to fight the marauders .What remains is to put into
    use all the facilities the Govt.had provided.

  3. Lets face it, 30min ongoing bank robbery should not be happening in this day and age, it’s 21 century for Christ sake. There are lots of security measures that the western countries has adopted like a fogging security system which is already in nigeria still waiting to be harness and many others security measure to support rapid response personelle and deter robberies from happening in Bank most especially. Sometimes I wonder why the banks and the police are not actively doing right thing! To stop robberies and insecurity in nigeria.
