71

The suspects arrested for attempting to rob an old generation bank in Mpape, Abuja, on Saturday, have reportedly indicted some employees of the financial institution.

It was gathered that the suspects told police detectives during interrogation that they were invited to carry out the robbery by some employees of the bank.

Operatives of the Federal Capital Territory Police Command and soldiers from the Guards Brigade foiled the robbery attack in Mpape, a settlement a few metres away from the highbrow Maitama District.

One of the suspects was gunned down, while four others were arrested.

The suspects had holed up in the banking hall for almost two hours until they were smoked out with teargas by security personnel, who condoned off all possible escape routes.

It was gathered that the suspects were invited to rob the Automated Teller Machines located on the bank premises.
