BREAKING: Armed robbers attack bank in Osun

A gang of armed robbers on Thursday attacked a branch of the Wema bank in Okuku, Odo-Otin Local Government of Osun State.

The robbery operations was said to have started around 3pm and as at the time of filing this report the incident is still ongoing.

The incident put a halt to social and commercial activities in the town for several minutes as residents living close to the bank ran for safety.

According to eyewitness, the robbers were shooting sporadically into the air to create fear and scare residents away for them to perpetrate their crime.

The State PPRO, Yemisi Opalola who confirmed the incident said the Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode is currently leading officers and men of the Force to the scene for possible arrest of armed robbers.

Details later….



  1. Where is the DPO in charge of Odo-Otin division of Nigeria police?
    Why the commissioner of police?
    I’m very sure that the robbers will be done with their business before the commissioner who will be going from Osogbo arrive the scene.

    I can remember when a similar incident occurred in 2016 in Ikirun, the DPO from Boripe and Ifelodun swung into action and got reinforced by additional men with arm’s and ammunitions from Osogbo, they caught and killed some of the guys on slot while others got arrest.

    All was possible with the aid of Armour Personnel Carriers (APC) or Armour tanks bought by the then governor Rauf Aregbesola.

    If I may ask, where are those Armour tanks now?
