There was a 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 suspect was hiding on 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 speaking on condition of anonymity said the suspected robber must have been hiding on the roof overnight.
He also said nobody knew how the suspect got into the roof of the bank as there were 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, Okasanmi Ajayi, confirmed the incident.
He said immediately the report reached the police command, the Commissioner of Police, Esosa Amadasun, visited the bank.
The police spokesperson said nobody was injured in the incident while interrogation of the suspect had commenced.
When a correspondent of the News Agency of Nigerian visited the bank, it was locked while a security man was busy directing customers to the Taiwo Road branch of the bank.
