For residents of Ekiti State who bank with Wema Bank, their biggest challenge presently is the security of their deposited funds.

This follows a robbery by a gang of dare-devil robbers who stormed Iyin-Ekiti, Irepodun/Ifelodun local government area branch of the bank on Friday, October 2, carting away undisclosed sum.

Having announced their presence with gunshots, the robbers reportedly blasted the security doors of the bank with an explosive device to gain access to the banking hall.

Having gained entrance into the bank, they caused pandemonium leading to residents running for their lives, while buses were forced to take alternative routes.

The operation reportedly lasted for more than forty minutes.

Reacting to the fact that the robbers were unhindered while they operated, an eyewitness said: “In fact, the police disappointed us. They disappointed the people of Iyin today. The robbers robbed for over 40 minutes without any challenge.

“They came in two vehicles, shot into the air and scared the people around away. In fact, those in the nearby market left their commodities and ran for their lives.”
