GUNMEN, yesterday, attacked a bullion van at the Koka Junction axis of the Benin-Onitsha expressway, Asaba, Delta State, carting away an undisclosed amount of money.
Vanguard learnt that the bullion van said to belong to a commercial bank was negotiating Ibusa road by Koka Junction on its way from Onitsha, Anambra State when it was intercepted by the hoodlums.
Sources said there was heavy shooting between the police escorts and the armed robbers as passers-by, residents and traders around the scene of the incident scampered for safety.
No life was lost during the incident, but a source who preferred anonymity said the hoodlums succeeded in making away with the cash after they ripped the bullion van open with bullets.
