There was drama on Friday at the Unity Road Branch of Guaranty Trust Bank in Ilorin as a suspected robber fell from the bank’s roof, throwing the banking hall into pandemonium.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the suspect was hiding in the roof of the bank while waiting for his accomplices to commence a robbery operation when he fell.

A security man attached to the bank told NAN on condition of anonymity that the suspected robber must have been hiding in the roof overnight.

He also said nobody knew how the suspect got into the roof of the bank as there was no sign of damage to any of the security doors in the bank.

The security man said the suspect was promptly apprehended by some customers inside the banking hall and later handed over to the police.

The Police Public Relations officer, ASP Okasanmi Ajayi, confirmed the incident to NAN.

He said immediately the report reached the police command, the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Esosa Amadasun, visited the bank.

The police spokesman said nobody was injured in the incident while interrogation of the suspect had commenced.

When NAN visited the bank, it was under lock while a security man was busy directing customers to the Taiwo Road branch of the bank. (NAN)
