The insider game in bank robbery again
played out during the week when a senior
bank manager, who allegedly runs an armed
robbery gang, was arrested along with two
members of his gang for attempting to rob a
bank in Ozoro, Isoko North Local Government

The arrest of the bank manager followed the

gang members that a staffer of the bank,
who happened to be one of the managers
and one of their brothers, contacted them to

one battle axe and other items were
recovered.
When contacted, Police Public Relations
Officer, DSP Celestina Kalu confirmed the

suspects confessed that their brother who is
a staff of the bank, hired them to rob the
bank as he told them that a huge amount of
money would be transferred from the bank to
Ellu village.

the road and rob him of the money that
would be on transit.
