A 43-year-old man, Azeez Isa has been arrested after he and fleeing members of his gang attempted to rob a bank opposite Maplewood Estate, Oko Oba in the early hours of today September 3.
The suspects were breaking the security doors to gain entry when men of the state police command stormed the scene to restore order. The robbery was averted and a suspect arrested.
PUNCH Metro gathered that the suspect carried out the act in the early hours of Sunday.
According to a police source, Isa was caught with a sledgehammer which he used to hit the security door of the bank while trying to gain entry.
The source who spoke on condition of anonymity said, “The security guards attached to the bank heard the sound of someone hitting an object early in the morning.
“They traced the sound and found a man using a sledgehammer to hit the security door. He kept hitting the door repeatedly without minding that the sound could attract the attention of people around there.”
The police source said the security guards were at first scared because they didn’t know who else was with him during the operation.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident.
“We got the distress call around 4.20 am and our patrol team responded swiftly. The man was arrested while still breaking the door. He is in police custody and is currently being interrogated,” he said.
