Nov 28, 2011 – Armed Robbers Kill 8 in in Sagamu, Ogun State, Nigeria

Thursday Nov 24, 2011 was a very bloody day at Sabo Ajegunle, in Sagamu Local Government Area of Ogun State, after armed robbers stormed 4 banks (Intercontinental Bank, Diamond Bank, Skye Bank and GT Bank) and unleashed a terror never seen before in the city. The robbers arrived around 12 noon, and shot sporadically into the air for almost twenty minutes to scare people away before entering the banks shooting at staff and carting away millions from the bank vaults.

The only bank they didn’t succeed in robbing was Intercontinental Bank. More than eight people were killed in the ugly incident…including a staff of one of the banks whose bullet ridden body was discovered outside the bank.

This is sad. May their soul rest in perfect peace.
