The Imo state command of the Nigeria police force says it has foiled an attempt by a robbery gang to attack a commercial bank on Douglas road, Owerri.

Francis Bisong, an area commander, told NAN that the planned attack was nipped in the bud, following the immediate deployment of crack detectives to the scene.

Bisong said the robbers fled on sighting the police team.

“No staff or customer of the bank was hurt in the failed robbery attempt and also no money was carted away,” he said.

He ‎urged the public to go about their normal businesses without fear, adding that the police was determined to safeguard lives and property in the state.

Andrew Enwerem, the state police public relations officer, said investigation into the botched attack had commenced.
