Bold-faced Woman Masterminded Ikorodu Bank Robberies


Nigeria - A gang of robbers attacked Zenith and First banks in Ogolonto, Ikorodu area of Lagos today and escaped with huge sums of money in their possession.

A lady was the leader of the gang.

Sources at the Zenith bank disclosed that there were about 15 armed robbers whose ages should not be more than 20years.

Witnesses said she sat down in front of the bank and was bragging, as no policeman was able to confront her as she was reported to have used a charm which she tied around her neck.

The bank’s safe as reported was broken with the use of dynamite and the staffs were made to lie on the floor while the robbery continued.


The young robbers were reported to have burnt three of their vehicles in front of Origin Gardens, a recreational place not far from scene of the incident, and escaped via the ferry service operated beside the Garden.


At the First Bank robbery scene, the suspects used a device to open the computerized door to gain entrance to the banking hall.

Monies were carted away but no staff of the bank was killed.

Only one person was reportedly shot in the leg and has been taken to Ikorodu General Hospital for treatment.

The Police staged a pursuit but the robbers escaped, leaving the policemen’s vehicle riddled with bullets.

Lagos state Commissioner of Police (CP), Kayode Aderanti, who was at the escape route, told reporters that the police would investigate the matter to know how the robbers carried out their operation successfully.

“We shall look into the matter and investigate thoroughly to know what happened,” he said.
