UPDATE:

Four people were killed today after a gang of armed robbers invaded the branch of First City Monument Bank (FCMB) at Plot B, Waterfront Plaza, Admiralty Way, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos state.

According to a witness, the four people were three police escorts of a passing civilian Coaster bus and a fish seller. The robbers, numbering at least 12, had arrived a few minutes before 5pm via a boat, and immediately began firing gunshots into the air in an operation that lasted exactly 25 minutes.

“It was a well-coordinated attack,” the witness said. “The robbers arrived in military camouflage and immediately distributed themselves, three of them manning each of the four exits of the bank. As I am talking to you now, the bodies of the three policemen that were killed are still on the ground.” He added that after forcing their way into the banking hall, the robbers immediately announced their intention, and everyone cooperated with them.


“Nobody was killed inside the bank because once they announced that they were robbers, everyone, including bank staff, cooperated. “So it was a successful operation for them, because they made away with a lot of money. They even hacked into the ATMs and carted away the money stuffed there.”
