Offa Rob­bery — Nine arrest­ed in con­nec­tion with Broad Day­light Fatal Rob­bery

Nine peo­ple have been arrest­ed after 15 peo­ple were killed when armed men attacked two banks and a police sta­tion in cen­tral Nige­ria, police said on Fri­day.

The gang struck in broad day­light in a busy com­mer­cial dis­trict in Offa, Kwara state, on April 6, open­ing fire indis­crim­i­nate­ly as they made off with the loot­ed cash.
Fed­er­al police spokesman Jimoh Mos­hood said the arrests were made dur­ing “mas­sive raids” in Offa and the south­west, which saw a shoot-out between offi­cers and sus­pects.
Those detained include the alleged mas­ter­mind of the attack, he added. Two pis­tols, ammu­ni­tion and mobile phones belong­ing to some of the vic­tims were recov­ered, he said.
Nigeria’s gov­ern­ment is fac­ing a num­ber of secu­ri­ty threats across the coun­try, includ­ing gang vio­lence which has been linked to kid­nap­ping and cat­tle rustling in north­ern states.
