The state's police public relations officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, claimed that the bank officers broke protocols by picking seven police officers from different locations to escort the van from Agbor to Asaba.

Aniamaka said: “Needless to state that when the bank officials earlier approached the Operations Department of the command for escort men, their request was turned down on the grounds that the bank does not have a serviceable bullion van needed for such operations.

“Sadly, during the attack, one of the police escorts was fatally injured by the armed robbers who also emptied the N25,000,000 into their cars – a Honda Pilot ‘jeep’ and Toyota Corolla, registration numbers unknown, and escaped.”

Meanwhile, We previously reported that the police in Kogi have killed a suspected notorious robber and kidnapper on their wanted list for many years, the Commissioner of Police, Wilson Inalegwu said in Lokoja on Monday, September 4.
