Dare devil armed robbers on Thursday stormed the UBA branch in Oye-Ekiti in Ekiti State killing a five-year-old pupil said to be coming back from school and a man identified as a Security Guard with the bank.
The robbers were said to have stormed the bank around 3pm before carting away money from the bank’s vault and available customers cash from the counter.
Confirming the incident, Ekiti State Police Command spokesman, DSP Caleb Ikechukwu, said the robbers were able to gain entrance through the use of dynamites and escaped through the bush.
