A closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage has surfaced online allegedly showing the Offa bank robberies, killing at least 17 persons including nine policemen.
It may be recalled that on Thursday, April 5, armed robbers invaded a handful of banks in Offa, Kwara State.
Among the victim banks were the Union Bank, EcoBank, Guaranty Trust Bank, First Bank, Zenith Bank and Ibolo Micro Finance Bank.
In the video, shared by GoldMyne, the alleged armed robbers were seen jumping the gate before shooting at the bank. A woman and her child were seen leaving what looked like the ATM house of a bank when gun-bearing men started shooting sporadically from the major road.
Two men standing by the small house took off immediately they heard the gunshots, while the camera angle did not show what became of the woman and the child she was holding.
After that, three armed men were seen going around seemingly coordinating what next to do. Smoke, which appeared to come from explosives were also seen after a banging noise.
Another explosive was later thrown into what seems like the small building housing the ATM. Then the men went inside and came out.
According to report, the CCTV footage is yet to be confirmed by the police as at the time of filing the report.
