With sporadic gunshots renting the air, the villagers ran into the bush as they scampered for safety.
According to a villager “The robbers arrived at the scene in a Lexus car and waylaid the convoy of the bullion van. They succeeded in vandalising two out of the three vehicles in the convoy with bullets.”
The villagers maintained that the Amotekun Corps arrived at the scene shortly after the robbers left and took one victim to the hospital.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Tee-Leo Ikoro said the robbers fled before the security men got there.
