Police have made progress in the deadly armed robbery attack that took place in Osun State by arresting four suspected members of the robbery gang which raided some commercial banks in Ikirun on Friday.
A gang of armed robbers had invaded Skye Bank, First Bank and Union Bank branches in Ikirun on Friday evening killing two bank officials.
This was revealed in a statement  by the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Kola Sodipo on Saturday.
He said the command lost two of its policemen during a gun duel with members of the gang who had earlier killed two officials of the banks they raided. He also revealed that the police recovered N7.5 million as well as arms and ammunition from the gang after engaging them in a fierce gun battle.
The names of the arrested suspects are – Aderibigbe Oluwaseun, 23, Ndubusi David, 21, Ayuba Salisu, 26 and Nuhu Jimoh, 21.
Sodipo said the police were able to counter the armed robbers because of the armoured personnel carriers provided by the Osun State Government which assisted the police in killing four of the armed robbers. He said four of the armed robbers were arrested.
“It would be recalled that on Feb. 12, at 15:45 hour, a distress call was received that men suspected to be armed robbers invaded Skye Bank, First Bank and Union Bank located on the same street in Ikirun.
 
“Swift response by the police repelled the attack,” he said.
He added that three AK riffles with 124 rounds of ammunition, one assault rifles with 12 rounds live ammunition, expended shells of ammunition and dynamite were also recovered.
Sodipo said that one standby Nissan sunny car which robbers wanted to use for escape was also recovered.
“A diligent investigation is ongoing for the arrest of other syndicate members,” Sodipo said.
The arrested robbers were presented to newsmen with the money and ammunition recovered.
