An eye witness told DAILY POST that the bandits stormed the banks at exactly 3:25pm, and raided the three banks, which are situated along Bowen University, simultaneously.
According to the eye witness, three policemen were murdered in the course of the robbery, while one of the robbers were killed by policemen attached to one of the banks.
Scores of the residents and students alike were injured as they scampered for safety when the robbery lasted.
