Several armed robbers on Friday afternoon attacked a bullion van belonging to a first generation bank along the Benin-Asaba dual carriage way and made away with over N60 million.

Reports say they ambushed the van while it was heading to Agbor. Many motorists abandoned their vehicles in the middle of the road as the robbers fired gunshots in the air while the operation was ongoing.

The eight police officers that accompanied the bullion van had to run for safety after the robbers overpowered them during a shootout.

The police said investigation is on and hinted that it was an inside job.
