August 17, 2016 – Robbers Attack CBN Bullion Van Carrying Money From Jos To Lafia, Kill 2 Policemen, Injure 3 CBN Staff

Some robbers wearing military uniform opened fire on a Bullion van belonging to the Central Bank of Nigeria near a military checkpoint in Riyom Plateau state yesterday.

The dare devils reportedly killed 2 police escorts and injured 3 staff of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

According to Plateau State Police Spokesperson Terna Tyopev, the robbers were unable to cart away money from the bullion van as police men engaged them in an intense fire fight at Hawan Kibo.

The deceased policemen were part of the Plateau State security outfit, “Operation Rainbow,” attached to Riyom Local Government.

Hawan Kibo is a dangerous location which has, for many years, served as safe haven for armed robbers. It is a bushy and rocky area with a very difficult terrain. Hawan Kibo is not far from military check-points in Riyom.

    Everyone is going cashless that they can do anything to get their hands on money considering the poor state of d current economy. Buh I’ll like to say this even if its not related to this post assuming they were human beings conveyed in that van, am sure d police would not have a second thought of running away but since it was money, some even had to die for it #naija_police_with_money_is =monkey and banana

    Na wa o, we were not told if d robbers are arrested, hope they are captured and sentenced to death. Good work to d police operatives. RiP to d officers, hope their families will be able to bear d loss.
    The govt needs to start compensating the families of officers who die in d line of duty.

    this is why i like Europe ,there is no way u will know the van they use in carrying money. it may look like ordinary van or personal vehicle belonging to person. u will never know even when they pass. so if u are thieve planing to rob tell me how would u identify van with money? impossible.
    but Nigeria they like like showing up even with the car they use in pushing money. why thief no ko know
