The suspects as gathered stationed their operational bikes close to the bank. On sighting the male customer coming out of the bank, three of them reportedly accosted him and shot him at close range, before collecting the money from him.

A mobile policeman, who attempted to rescue the bank customer, was reportedly shot in the hand, just as it was reported that the mobile policeman also shot one of the bandits in the leg as they were fleeing the scene.

When news of the incident filtered into the Police command headquarters, the state commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoswni, signalled divisions under area ‘B’ Apapa command to be on red alert.
