Police speaks on fresh bank ‘robbery attack’ in Kwara


The Kwara State Police Command has denied report of alleged bank robbery at a GT Bank, Tanke Junction, Ilorin.

The command spokesman, Dsp Okasanmi Ajayi in a statement on Friday described the report as a ‘false alarm, adding that no bank robbery occurred in the State.

He said, ”The Command is shocked to receive an avalanche of calls from panic stricken individuals, arising from a false alarm to the effect that robbers are operating in some banks along Unity and Taiwo areas, the alarm is false, fake and a ploy to cause unnecessary panic in the minds of the people.

”The command wishes to assure members of the public of their safety, and its preparedness to provide needed security cover for all the banks in particular and people of Kwara in general.

The spokesman, however, advised members of the public to continue with their duties.

”Members of the public are advised to be vigilant and make information of untoward movements available to the police please. “
