Nigeria is faced with an unprecedented wave of different but overlapping security crises as again, suspected armed robbers has made an attempt to rob a customer of Sterling Bank in Adeola Odeku, Lagos Island area.
Our investigation learnt that the robbers arrived at branch of the bank, located at Adeola Odeku street in Lagos island about noon period; trailing a customer who brought huge amount of money to save in the bank.
In a distress voice-note circulating the social media, we heard a man calling on people to spread the news of the unfortunate incident, saying; his wife is trapped in the bank with the robbers. “Guys! breaking news; Armed Robbers are robbing in Sterling Bank, Adeola Odeku Branch right now, and my wife is there. I cant type, i can only drop a voice message.” The man said.
For proper clarification, Conquest News Online reached out to one of the bank’s communication officers, Mr Atufe. “Yes, there was a little situation in one of the branches today; but we thank GOD, the act was abortive and ineffectual. The robbers trailed a customer coming to save some money, but they were stuck at the entrance of the bank. As soon as the customer made his way into the banking hall, the robbers were shut out, they couldn’t gain entrance and that was how they left.” He said.
