Gunmen Storm Bank In Bayelsa
Their plan was to rob, so they stormed the bank in the morning to waylay a customer who came to deposit or withdraw cash.
But that customer, who may not even be aware they were to be a victim, was lucky to have escaped.
At the premises of a new generation bank in Amarata, a suburb of the Bayelsa capital, Yenagoa, security operatives on Tuesday, October 23rd nabbed three gunmen.
A source who preferred anonymity, told NAN that one of the gunmen was sighted by the bank’s Manager while watching through the Close Circuit Television, (CCTV) in his office.
Suspecting that the young man must be up to something sinister, he immediately alerted the security agents at the bank who swung into action immediately.
They took the suspect to a corner of the bank for interrogation which led to the discovery of a pistol in his pocket.
The suspect revealed upon further interrogation that there were two other members of his gang outside the bank premises, allegedly waiting to rob one of the bank’s customers.
The suspects were also immediately arrested, with a pistol in each ones pocket and were handed over to the police.
When contacted, the Bayelsa Police Command Spokesperson, Mr Asinim Butswat, said he had yet to be briefed on the incident.
