In what appears to be like a Hollywood movie, except that it isnt, three robbers stormed the office of popular telecommunication’s network MTN and carted away 4.5 million naira.
The story was confirmed by the Kebbi Police Command which said the robbery took place on Wednesday.
The Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Nafi’u Abubakar said: “Yes, the robbery took place and investigation has since begun,” he said.
A visibly distraught Manager of MTN in the state told NAN that the robbers stormed the shop around 2.pm on Wednesday and took away about N4.5 million.
“The armed robbers carried out the operation in less than five minutes when they stormed our office at around 2 pm and carted away nothing less than N4.5 million, ” he said.
Mr. Dasuki added that the three masked armed robbers arrived at the office in a Toyota saloon car with Bauchi state number plate. “On arrival, the robbers, armed with AK 47 ordered all the people outside the office to lay down while wielding their guns.”
He said that one of the rubbers was left outside holding those laying down hostage at gunpoint. Dasuki explained that the remaining two shot into the air immediately after they gained entry into the office and demanded money.
They afterwards left with the money which was meant for running of operations of the store. The entire operation lasted five minutes according to him.
