The Simeon Oduoye female hostel of the College of Agricultural Science (CAS), Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki, was on Tuesday robbed, and the Automated Teller Machine (ATM), belonging to an old generation bank located on campus, invaded by the armed bandits.
The hoodlums were said to have beat all the security checks in the school and proceeded to the ATM where they carted away money amounting to over N10 million which the bank officials loaded in the machine for customers.
An eyewitness explained that the robbers came into the campus in the night and went straight to the bank. They later carted away millions of Nigeria which was loaded in the day by the bank officials.
“We learnt that up to N12million was stolen during the incident. I can’t tell the actual amount, but all I know is that there was robbery in this bank,” one of the sources said.
Another source claimed that the hoodlums first sacked the security officials at the entrance gate before entering the bank.
