An armed robbery attack which happened on Tuesday along the Sani Abacha Expressway, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital, reportedly left one person dead.

The armed robbers were said to have stormed the premises of a new generational bank in the area and held customers hostage, dispossessing them of their cash, mobile phones and other valuables.

The deceased, Obele Wilson, a final year engineering undergraduate student of Bayelsa State-owned Niger Delta University, Amasoma, was in the bank premises when the gang broke in.

Wilson, according to reports, was helping admission seekers to process ND screening forms for a fee inside the bank.

However, when the bandits stormed the place and started dispossessing people of their cash and other valuables, the deceased, an indigene of Ogbia Local Government Area of the state, allegedly argued with them.

They became furious and gunned him down.

Some sympathisers were said to have rushed Wilson to a hospital but he died on the way.

The deceased was the immediate past Vice-President of the National Union of Bayelsa State Students and a leader of the Ogbia students’ union.

Confirming the incident on Thursday, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Asinim Butswat, said efforts were on to apprehend the robbers.

“One Wilson Obele was shot dead during the operation,” he said.
