OMG!!! Police kick as Ogun banks shut down in Ijebu over robbers notice of attack

W3Schools

Ogun state police command has kicked as commercials banks in Ijebu-Ode area of the state refused to open for business over fear of being attacked by armed robbers.

It was gathered that the fear of the bankers were not unconnected with the way some of the banks were robbed some years ago, leading to loss of lives .

The banks have insisted on not opening their branches except the Ogun State Government assist the police with armoured personnel carriers to be mounted close to their branches.

Some residents of Ijebu-Ode who pleaded anonymity said many had been travelling to places like Sagamu, Abeokuta and others to deposit or withdraw money.

A Point-of-Sale operator lamented that the development portends “great danger” for him and others in the business in Ijebu-Ode.

“We withdraw money from banks to pay our customers and we also deposit in the bank when we have large sums of money in our kitty.“If the banks are not opening, it will negatively affect us. In fact, it is affecting me already. I’ve been going to Sagamu to make withdrawals. It is bad.”

When contacted, the State Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed the development .

Oyeyemi said the bankers were just entertaining fear where there is none.

He said, ” I don’t see any reason for that action . Honestly , there is no reason for it at all . The police called them and assure them of their safety. The police are posted everywhere. They saw the presence of the police. They are now claiming that the Armoured Personnel Carirer there has fault. Even, if Armoured Personnel Carrier has fault, is it not the police that will still operate it ?”
