Many feared dead as dare-devil robbers hit multiple banks in Edo

Some commercial banks in Uromi, headquarters of Esan North-East Local Government Area of Edo State, on Thursday evening, February 24, 2022, came under attacks in what looked like a coordinated attack that was said to have lasted for about two hours.

An eye witness said that the attacks on the banks were coordinated and after the attacks, a Lexus-350 jeep, silver-coloured and fully loaded with what is believed to be cash, was sighted heading towards Ubiaza Old Road in the town.

He said the attacks as “too coordinated in commando style and the armed robbers launched the attacks simultaneously. This is novel in this town.”

“The sporadic shots by the armed robbers caused panic in the town. The robbers came prepared. People are just running helter-skelter,” another source said.

Some civilians caught in the crossfire also lost their lives.

The Edo State Police Command Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Kontongs Bello, confirmed the incident.
