A three-man gang of armed robbers on Tuesday attacked an unidentified man in Kwara State and carted away millions of naira in the process.
The incident, Daily Trust gathered, happened on Tuesday afternoon on Lajorin Street opposite Excellence Citizens Bar, near the State High Court in Ilorin.
The robbers, who reportedly wielded AK-47 rifles, had trailed the victim, said to be around 60 years old to the spot.
According to eye witness,“The robbers, three in number, came in an ash coloured Toyota Corolla 2016 model bearing Lagos number plate.“They were wearing police uniforms and I thought they were policemen. I initially thought the victim was a yahoo boy (internet fraudster) and was telling them to take it easy with him. But I later realised that they were hooded armed robbers and I stylishly escaped from the place.
“They shouted at the victim in a metallic green Toyota Corolla 2006 model. He was trailed from FCMB in Murtala. They were asking him for the money after he was ambushed right on the road”, she said.
Several attempts to speak to the spokesman of the Kwara State Police Command, Ajayi Okasanmi, indicated was not fruitful as at press time.
