Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

Robbers on Thursday attacked a bullion van on Ado Road in Ajah area of Lagos State, killing at least one person in the process.

The suspects made away with huge sums of money after successfully breaking into the van.

It was gathered that the gunmen first fired at the van from a distance, but the driver refused to stop till he got to Blenco Supermarket.

The suspects rained bullets into the van to open the lock, according to a clip of the robbery which has gone viral.

A witness @Simisoula on Twitter said: “Armed robbers just robbed Blenco’s ATM bullion van (Ado Road, Ajah) just now. Raining bullet with Blenco police. They made away with the money and scattered the rest on the road. People are picking money right now on the road. Pls stay indoors if you are in that axis.”

Police commissioner Hakeem Odumosu could not speak on the matter as he was yet to be fully briefed, PUNCH reports.
