The cars are Volkswagen Golf, marked GED 906 AA; Acura MDX Jeep marked LSR 327 CD; and Toyota Camry marked GED 106 ER.

The Police Command in Ekiti has recovered three vehicles abandoned by robbers who invaded Wema Bank in Iyin-Ekiti on Friday.

Sunday Abutu, the Public Relations Officer, said Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), Indian hemp, alcoholic drinks and two cell phones, were also found.

Abutu, in a statement, recalled that the armed gang numbering about ten stormed the financial institution at about 3:55 pm.

The spokesman disclosed that they overpowered the policemen on guard at the bank due to their large number.

He confirmed that an undisclosed amount of cash was carted away but no casualty was recorded.

Abutu said reinforcement to the scene forced the robbers to retreat with the three vehicles.

The image maker added that operatives chased them and exchanged fire during which they abandoned the cars and ran into the forest.

“The Operatives of the Ekiti State Police Command which comprises the PMF, SARS, SAFER HIGHWAY as well as the local Vigilante group, led by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), are currently combing the bush for the possible arrest of the suspects.

“The command implores all the good people of Ekiti State to be vigilant and report to the nearest Police Station any suspicious movements or suspected persons or groups of persons they see in their Communities or call Police Control Room on phone Number 08062335577,” he said.
