What We Know So Far About The Attempted Bank Robbery At Lagere

By Uthman Samad


It was an unusual and tense atmosphere earlier today at the surbub area of the ancient town of Ile Ife - Lagere, as suspected armed robbers shot sporadically into the air, in what seems to be an attempt to rob banks in the area. Afterwards, the intervention of the Nigerian police force, Ile-Ife command foiled the attempt, the Police claims.

In a phone convrvsation with OAU Peeps News Agency, Funsho Adegboye, the Ife Area Commander said it was just an attempted robbery.

"There was no attack, it was an attempted robbery based on the information we got from the members of the public which is highly commendable," the Area Commander told us.



"As we got the information, we alerted our officers, we deployed them and we are able to pursue them. On sighting the Police, there was an open fire, in which one of the robbers sustained injury. We are able to dislodge them and we impounded the Toyota Sienna vehicle they brought," he added.

Laying to rest the insinuation that some banks in the area were attacked, a staff of Fidelity Bank who does not want his name in the print because he was not authorised to speak on the development said the bank was not attacked.

Reiterating this, the Ife Area commander confirmed no bank was attacked. He said "the quick intervention of the Police and quick reinforcement of the commissioner of police from Osogbo prevented what could have been a robbery attack. You know banks are concentrated in one area, so they were caught met with resistenace between Diamond and Fidelity banks."



The Police claimed that one of the suspected robbers sustained injury during the gunshot exchange.

The commander also noted that no casualty was recorded as no police officer was either injured or shot.

OAU Peeps also understands through investigation that the suspected robbers earlier lauched an attack around Damico Area, close to campus gate, of which the commander confirmed.

Accounts from eye witnesses who spoke with OAU Peeps confirmed there were gunshots and the suspected robbers later escaped through the Akarabata area of Modakeke town.
