A robbery attack on a bank in Ikirun, Osun State yesterday left two persons dead, while no fewer than five others sustained injuries.
The robbery attack lasted half an hour at the Ikirun branch of a new generation bank, and left the area in panic as security agents attached to the bank and residents took to their heels on sighting the armed robbers.
According to an eye witness, the robbers, whose number could not be ascertained arrived at the bank on new Inisha road at about 4.00.p.m. and carted away an unspecified amount of money.
The hoodlums were said to have shot sporadically into the air in order to scare away people at the vicinity.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Folasade Odoro, confirmed the incident but said the command would release details as soon as the report was available. [NAN]
