They shot continuously into the air near the bank which made customers and staff escaped in various directions for safety. A source, who was at the bank, said the gunmen shot the man they followed to the bank
The report is not clear yet, if they succeeded in robbing the man and whether he is still alive or dead. The source stated that they did not enter the bank as their interest seemed to be on the man. However, the gunmen were said to have moved from the bank to some outfits in the area which they robbed without any obstruction. They were said to have entered a provision store and carted away from some cartons of drinks. From there, they moved to a nearby drinks shop and robbed the owners of their money.
