A bank manager and a dispatch rider have been arrested for attempting to rob their employers.
The regional manager, Francis Enebeme, and Wilfred Akah, the dispatch rider of a new generation commercial bank located in Warri, Delta State, have been arrested in connection with a foiled robbery of the bank.
According to the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Celestina Kalu, the two men were picked up after some suspects arrested in the aftermath of the attempted robbery, fingered them as the brain behind the crime and had supplied the criminals with vital information.
“On September 4, 2015, the police received credible information that a gang of armed robbers had finalised plans to rob Enterprise Bank Plc, along Effurun-Sapele Road, by Refinery Junction, Warri.
So SARS operatives mounted surveillance around the Bank, and at about 5.23 pm of same date, the hoodlums invaded the Bank.
But they were successfully repelled by a combined team of SARS operatives and mobile policemen on duty at the Bank.
Police investigations later revealed that the two staff of the bank were involved in the attempted robbery," Kalu said.
She further confirmed that the two bank staff were involved in the planning and execution of the foiled robbery and are currently undergoing interrogation, while various sums of money hidden in the offices by the two suspects were equally recovered.
