Man attempts breaking into Lagos bank with hammer



The Lagos police have arrested a 43-year-old man, Azeez Isa for attempting to rob a new generation bank in the state.

It was learnt that the suspected robber wanted to break into a bank opposite the Maplewood Estate in the Oko Oba area in the early hours of Sunday.
A police source said Isa was caught with a sledgehammer which he used to hit the security door of the financial institution while trying to gain entry, adding that the security guards were at first scared because they didn’t know who else was with him during the operation.

The source said; “The security guards attached to the bank heard the sound of someone hitting an object early in the morning.

“They traced the sound and found a man using a sledgehammer to hit the security door. He kept hitting the door repeatedly without minding that the sound could attract the attention of people around there.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin who confirmed the incident, revealed that the uspect was arrested while carrying out the act.

“We got the distress call around 4.20 am and our patrol team responded swiftly. The man was arrested while still breaking the door. He is in police custody and is currently being interrogated,” he said.
