Nigeria In One Minute

How ‘Ambulance Robbers’ caught Ekiti unawares, killed three policemen, one bank customer – Residents



Conveying the ‘dead’ (read assault rifles) in a casket, the ambulance made its way into the serene and empty streets of Ijero-Ekiti on a Monday evening.

Destination was the Divisional Police Headquarters in the heart of the agrarian community. On reaching the gates of the police station, the ‘undertakers’ (read gunmen) disembarked with a ferocious mien, turning their assault rifles on the structure and firing on police officers inside who were caught unawares.

After the attack on the police station, the gunmen jumped into the ambulance and headed to one of the old generation banks nearby.

A source in the town said the men of the underworld ransacked the bank premises unchallenged and retreated through the same route.

It was learnt that the robbers made away with an unspecified but large amount of money during the raid on the bank.
