December 8, 2017 – Armed Robbers Attack UBA Bullion Van In Asaba Delta State, Steal N60Million As 8 Police Escorts Flee From Scene

Chaos broke out today in some parts of Asaba, the capital city of Delta state after a robbery gang attacked a bullion van and carted away the total sum of sixty million naira.

The ambush attack carried out at the ever busy Koka junction on Benin Onitsha expressway caused serious traffic gridlock as motorists abandoned their vehicle in the middle of the road when guns boomed during the midday raid as the robbers in a convoy of 3 vehicles exchanged fire with eight policemen escorting the bullion van belonging to United Bank Of Africa to Agbor Delta state.

The image maker for Delta state Police Command, DSP Andrew Aniamaka said internal connivance can’t be ruled out in the ambush attack.

He lamented that some banks are fond of using non bullet proof bullion vans despite warning by the Police command.

Here is what an eyewitness said:

DSP Aniamaka who confirmed the ambush attack said no life was lost and no injury was sustained in the shootout.

    As much as one can conveniently suspect an insider operation, one must firstly look at the bullion van used – 8 was it a bullet-proof or not? If not why? Secondly, how on earth in the present day Nigeria where policemen are under-equipped to face criminals with superior fire-resistant especially when police men poorly rewarded n often the bereaved families of policemen killed on duty are neglected n abandoned. This event is a further indication of badly security situations are in the nation, it’s very the greedy politicians are not bordered so long as they are secured. Will lesson be learned from this happening????
