Dec 14, 2012 – Robbers Attack Peace Mass Transit Bus Park In Nsukka, Enugu State

Passengers, staff and residents of Nsukka, eastern Nigeria, were gripped with fear when armed robbers on Thursday, invaded Peace Mass Transit Park in Nsukka in Enugu State, carting away an undisclosed amount of money.

A staff of the company, who pleaded anonymity, said that the seven-man robbery gang, wearing mobile police uniform, stormed the ticketing office at about 3.28 p.m.

He said that the robbers, who brandished AK 47 rifles, ordered the workers to lie flat on the ground.

“They came with a school bus, belonging to Imilke-Agu Secondary School.

“Three of them entered the ticketing room, searched the lockers where we keep money and removed the money they found there while the others mounted sentry outside.

“The robbers, who wore mobile police uniform, shot in the air several times to scare people,” the staff told NAN.

A Nsukka Office Manger of the company, a retired police officer, who refused to disclose his full names, but identified himself simply as Mr Ogaranya, said he sensed danger when he heard harsh voices asking of the manager’s office.

“They ordered me to lie down and asked me to tell them where money is kept. All of them wore mobile police uniform and were armed with AK47 rifles.

“I do not know how much they collected; all I know is that they collected all the money in my locker.

“I thank God we have moved the money we collected in the morning to the bank,’’ Ogaranya said.

NAN reports that traders and artisans who ply their trade at the park, immediately closed shop for the day after the incident.

When contacted, the Enugu State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Mr Ebere Amarizu, who confirmed the incident, said that police had started trailing the robbers.

“I have been informed of the robbery incident in PMT Nsukka Office today, the Police have started trailing the robbers,” he said. (NAN Report)
