Two people were reportedly killed when suspected armed robbers attacked an old generation bank in Iju-Itaogbolu, Akure north local council area of Ondo state.

A source told TheCable that the robbers numbering about eight invaded the town and divided themselves into two groups before they commenced the operation.

He said the robbers held the town hostage for a long time, detonating explosives and shooting sporadically.

Staff of the bank and some customers reportedly sustained injuries in the attack.

“Many people were injured and and about two people were killed but I don’t know their identities yet,” the source said.

Undie Adie, commissioner of police in Ondo, confirmed the attack to journalists.

“The robbery occurred few hours ago in Iju and we have deployed men from our officers to the scene. Our officers engaged the armed robbers in a gun duel and they abandoned their vehicle and ran inside the bush.

“Although, the details of the attack is still sketchy but our men have entered the bush and are on the trail of the robbers.”
