Mpape First Bank Robbery: Shocking Revelation As Suspects Name Informant

The arrested suspects of the Mpape foiled First Bank robbery attack on Saturday morning have allegedly mentioned the bank branch manager as their informant on whose tips they carried out the attempted robbery in the bank.

Afripost recalls that the armed robber suspects successfully gained entry into the branch of the First bank located at Mpape, Abuja but were held under siege by security operatives comprising the Police, Army and DSS personnel following alarm raised by eyewitnesses.

The security operatives killed one of the suspected robbers who attempted to escape while 4 others were arrested.

The police, in an official reaction, said the FCT Command scuttled the attempted robbery at about 1200hrs.

“Consequently, Four suspects were arrested and one shot dead while trying to escape. The Commissioner of Police has ordered a discreet investigation of the incident”, the spokesman said.

“The Command urges residents to remain calm as normalcy has been restored while reaffirming its commitment to nip crime in the bud and ensure safety in the FCT.
