A three-man gang of armed robbers on Tuesday in Kwara State attacked an unidentified man and carted away millions of naira in the process.

The incident, Daily Trust gathered, happened on Tuesday afternoon at Lajorin Street opposite Excellence Citizens Bar not far from the state High Court in Ilorin.

The robbers, who reportedly wielded A-K 47 rifles, had trailed the victim, said to be around 60 years to the spot.

When our correspondent visited the scene around 6:50 pm, residents were still in shock discussing the incident, which they said lasted a few minutes.

It was also observed that shop owners closed early for fear of a possible police raid.

Several calls to the spokesman for the Kwara State Police Command, Ajayi Okasanmi, were busy. He was also yet to reply to a text message seeking his response to the incident before the filing of this report Tuesday night.
