Armed Robbers Attack FCMB Bank In Lekki, Lagos; 4 People Dead [Photos]

Four people were killed today after a gang of armed robbers invaded the branch of First City Monument Bank (FCMB) at Plot B, Waterfront Plaza, Admiralty Way, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos state.

According to a witness who talked to CableNG, the four people were three police escorts of a passing civilian Coaster bus and a fish seller. The robbers, numbering at least 12, had arrived a few minutes before 5pm via a boat, and immediately began firing gunshots into the air in an operation that lasted exactly 25 minutes.

“It was a well-coordinated attack,” the
witness said. “The robbers arrived in military
camouflage and immediately distributed
themselves, three of them manning each of
the four exits of the bank.
As I am talking to
you now, the bodies of the three policemen
that were killed are still on the ground.” He
added that after forcing their way into the
banking hall, the robbers immediately
announced their intention, and everyone
cooperated with them.

“Nobody was killed inside the bank because once they announced that they were robbers, everyone, including bank staff, cooperated. “So it was a successful operation for them, because they made away with a lot of money. They even hacked into the ATMs and acrted away the money stuffed there.”

You NEVER want to experience a bank robbery, guys!!!!! I'm practically shaking all over again. May the souls of the dead rest in perfect peace. Kai!!
