|The bullion van robbed in Asaba|
The sad incident took place on Friday, December 8, 2017, when daredevil armed robbers numbering over five using a sienna car attacked a bullion van belonging to a major bank around Koka junction along the Asaba-Benin Expressway and carted away an undisclosed amount of cash, running into several millions of naira as they shot sporadically to scare people away from the scene of the operation.
Shortly after the encounter, three senior officials of the bank stormed the state police command, Asaba and met with the outgoing commissioner of police, Zanna Ibrahim and other officers and dropped the hint that the sum of $2 million was allegedly carted away by the armed robbers during the robbery.
A senior Special Anti Robbery Squad official in the state police command told Sahara Reporters that the bank officials gave the figure of $2 million as the cash carted away by the bandits during the operation while the Nigerian currency in several bags was left untouched touched.
"One Mr. Ikechulwu, head of operations, one Mr. Athanasius, the cash movement officer and a lady manager came to the command and met with the commissioner of police and other senior officers of the command and told us that the sum of $2 million was the amount carted away by the robbers during the bullion van robbery.
"As at this money no arrest has been made but I can tell you that some of the bank officials and the team of policemen who served as escort to the bullion van on the day of the robbery have been quizzed several times at the state police command. Though, we are suspecting a well coordinated internal connivance in the robbery. But I can assure you that in no distance time the robbers will be arrested," the officer said.
