Armed robbers attack bank at Ughelli leaving with N25m


The men of the underworld struck again in Delta State. On Saturday night it was reported that suspected armed robbers invaded an only branch of an old generation bank in Ughelli, Delta State, making away with about N25 million.

An unidentified staff of the bank told Tribune Online on Sunday afternoon in Warri that the rampaging robbers invaded the strong room and vault of the bank with jigsaw, drilling machine, welding machine and other tools.

The bank source said dynamites were also used to blow up the Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) from the inside of the bank, but left the ATM machine outside untouched.

The robbers were said to have clinically carried out the midnight operation in military camouflage with no resistance.

The source said after gaining access to the premises of the bank, the security men on duty were rounded up and tied down like goats in order not to pose any threat.

Some senior officials of the bank as well as the security men on duty who were arrested and taken to police headquarters after the incident were released on Sunday.
