    I live very close to d bank.. The robbers arrived at 5pm on dot.. Infact we heard d first gunshot sounded at exactly 5pm.. I was on my way to church wen i heard d gunshot. I ran back home to lie down for good 35 minutes, incase of stray bullet.. D bank guard killed lived very close to my place. D operation lasted for 30minutes. D POLICE DID NOT SHOW UP AT ALL. They came an hour after d bandits have left. D ATM was not blown, it was d security door dat was blown up by dynamite.. There was no exchange of gun btw d bandits and policemen as against watd ppro dsp caleb ikechukwu said. But d police came after an hour wen d robbers had already left. D police have no truth at all.. D robbers operated freely killing d guard and shot many others. One of d bank official shot, died on his way to d hospital.. Anoda trader shot,,died in d hospital dis morning . Many others were shot and wounded.
