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 insinu…
