Bayelsa – Armed robbers reportedly launched a "daring attack" on a bank in the Bayelsa state on Saturday, leaving the community in shock, Vanguard reports.
The gunmen, who numbered up to 12, were armed with sophisticated weapons and dynamites.
They overwhelmed the police as they shot their way into the bank.
"The armed men threw dynamites at the walls of the bank, bringing down its fences. They gained access to the bank premises but were unable to get in after much attempt... They therefore blew up the walls holding the ATM machines and made away with them," a witness was quoted as saying.
The name of the bank was withheld due to security reasons.
