A group of armed robbers attacked a new generation bank at Trans-Amadi road in Port harcourt, Rivers state on October 14th and abandoned their operational vehicle, a Lexus jeep after they were overpowered by the Rivers state police command who engaged them in a fierce gun battle.

 Items recovered from the vehicle included stolen money to the tune of 137 million Naira, one AK 47 rifle, rocket, an English made pistol and six magazines. The fleeing robbers also abandoned another Lexus jeep at Rukpokwu along with three magazines and 160 rounds of 7.62 live ammunition.

A statement released Wednesday night by the Police Public Relations Officer in Rivers State, DSP Ahmad Muhammad said the Police got a distress call at about 5.12pm on Wednesday that robbers were operating at the bank, and they immediately mobilised to the scene.

He said before the Police got to the bank, the robbers had driven out but they pursued and caught up with them.

DSP Muhammad said during an exchange of fire, two policemen sustained bullet wounds, adding that they were responding to treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Port Harcourt.

Continuing, he said among items recovered from the robbers were N137 million, one AK-47 rifle, a rocket, a pistol and six magazines.

He said the items were found in a vehicle abandoned by the fleeing robbers who could not stand the fire power of the police.

He said: ?At about 5.15 pm, we received a distress call that some criminals robbed a new generation bank at Trans Amadi, Port Harcourt. Instant action and hot chase by our men forced the armed robbers to abandon their operational vehicle, a Lexus SUV and escaped with gunshot wounds. Items recovered from the vehicles include the stolen money to the tune of N137m, one AK-47rifle, rocket, an English-made pistol and six magazines?.

The fleeing robbers, according to the Police, also abandoned another Lexus SUV at Rukpokwu area of the state capital.
