The bank confirmed the end of the horrible incident in an official statement and also assured that customers and staff of the institution were all safe and well. “We wish to inform everyone that the attempted robbery incident that happened at one of our branches in Abuja has been foiled; customers and staff are unhurt, and the suspects have been apprehended.
“The immediate response by the police and military is very commendable and we truly appreciate them for their doggedness and commitment.”
According to report, a group of brave police officers and gallant soldiers trapped some armed robbers inside an Abuja bank at Mpape on Saturday, December 27. The robbers were said to have stormed the bank, shooting simultaneously into the air to scare people away but instead attracted the attention of law enforcement agents. Policemen and soldiers arrived on the scene just shortly after they gained entrance into the bank.
They positioned themselves close to the entrance of the bank effectively preventing the robbers from leaving with their loot.
One robber, daredevil enough to venture out of the bank, was shot by the law enforcement agents waiting on the outside.
The police later confirmed that the robber died after he stumbled back into the bank with at least one gunshot wound.
The standoff attracted residents who gathered to see how it all ended.
