Gunmen numbering over 20 on Tuesday attacked some commercial banks in Ankpa, Kogi State.

It was gathered that for over an hour, Ankpa, the headquarters of Ankpa Local Government Area of the state, was under the robbers’ siege, leading to the death of a yet-to-be identified lady.

An eyewitness, who did not want his name in print for security reasons, informed our correspondent that some of the robbers arrived the town in three vehicles, while others arrived on motorcycles.

It was gathered that they entered Ankpa through the eastern flank, blocked all exit routes and operated uninterrupted.

They were said to have first attacked the police station in the town on their way to the banks.

“After robbing the banks for about an hour, they drove dangerously through the town out of Ankpa with unending gunshots.

“They left Ankpa through Okpo Olamaboro Local Government Area road, but no one knew their destination,” the source added.

The state Commissioner of Police, Edward Egbuka and the state Police Public Relations Officer, William Aya, did not take their calls on Tuesday.

They also did not reply the text messages sent to them.
