“The robbers rained bullets on the bullion van but the driver succeeded in making a detour and escaped with the content of the van intact. Several persons were caught in the cross-fire and they got injured.

One of the robbers got injured in the unsuccessful robbery operation but his colleagues dragged him into their get away car and escaped through Benin-Onitsha Expressway.
