3 Killed As Armed Robbers Attack 3 Banks Outside Bowen University - Graphic Photos

Armed robbers attacked at least banks outside Bowen University in Iwo, Osun state yesterday Tuesday, 6th June. The robbers were heavily armed to teeth. 
According to reports, three persons including police officers were recorded dead during the operation. The hoodlums had reportedly gone straight to the police station in the town and attacked the men on duty before proceeding to where the three banks in the town are located.

According to an eyewitness, explosives were used and the rains concealed the sounds of the gunshots that went on for about an hour. There was pandemonium around the campus of Bowen University.

The armed men succeeded in their operations and carted away large sums of money, vandalised Automated Teller Machines (ATMs). Some of the banks involved include First bank, Sterling bank and Skye bank.

From report, the university was reportedly not attacked.

According to a statement by a resident of that area; 

"the streets were deserted as robbers and policemen exchanged fire during the operation."
“Armed robbers attacked the banks in Iwo today. They came this evening and first went straight to the police station and attacked their men there. After that, they went to the area where the banks are located and carried out their operation."
"They killed three policemen and the police also killed one of the robbers. It is a terrible day here in Iwo. I think the banks were aware that they could be attacked because they have been closing by 12noon for the past two months or thereabout.”
