Asaba—A gang of armed robbers have allegedly snatched N15 million belonging to Aniocha North Local Government Area in Issele-Uku, Delta State.
The daylight robbery, took place last week, while all attention was focused on how to rescue the kidnapped mother of Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okojono-Iweala. Vanguard gathered that the robbers trailed the council cashier to the bank.
A worker in the council, who pleaded anonymity, told our reporter that “the robbers trailed the council cashier to the bank.”
Contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Charles Muka, described the said robbery incident as phantom.
He said: “There was a phantom theft allegedly from a cashier’s car booth, who is still on the run. There is no sign that the said booth was forced open and no evidence of robbery either. The cashier is being investigated. The onus is his to prove that he was robbed but for now, we do not have evidence of robbery.”
