Bullion van ambushed by armed on Asaba-Benin expressway,

A police officer was shot dead and N25 million stolen after a group of robbers attacked a bullion van on Asaba-Benin expressway, Delta state. The robbery, which took place between Otulu and Ubulu-Okiti, was a deadly one with the robbers, numbering up to six. 

According to a report by New Telegraph, the Delta state police  arrested the cash management officer and all the parties involved in transporting the money including  the two drivers of the affected bank. 

The state's Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), 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.”
