“It was a failed attempt on a Bank’s bullion vehicle traveling to Akure,” one of the residents said. One individual was injured and was sent to the hospital. The thieves were unsuccessful, but no arrests have yet been made. “For the time being, the situation is calm.”
DSP Tee-Leo Ikoro, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the event, saying the thieves’ attempt was thwarted.
