It was a black Thursday yesterday in Edo state as armed men yesterday evening invaded Igarra, the headquarters of Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of Edo State and killed not fewer than 12 people in their bid to rob two commercial banks, though their attempt was not successful.

The robbers had earlier attacked the local police station where they shot and killed a policeman on duty with two detainees while also setting s a Toyota Hilux on fire. They then headed to attack the banks.

Meanwhile, the Edo State Police Public Relations Officer, Chidi Nwabuzor, confirmed the incident but said information about the attack was still 'sketchy' and he will give detailed update about the incident later.

At least four other persons were reportedly killed at the banks when the armed men could not have access to the vaults of the banks.

A leader in the community who is the Palace Secretary to the paramount ruler or Otaru of Igarra, Elder Folorunsho Dania also confirmed the incident to reporters.

It will be recalled that, in November 2015, armed robbers attacked the same community a situation that led to the death of six people then.

This was made known by the Governor through a tweet from his twitter handle yesterday (Thursday), it will be recalled that there has been rumour some days ago that the Governor has fully recovered, but there is no official backing for the claim until yesterday when the Governor himself made it known publicly.

The Governor thanked the people of his state, as well as religious leaders in Bauchi and elsewhere for their support and prayers while he was in isolation.

He also extends his thanks to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the team of health experts in Bauchi tackling coronavirus.

It will be recalled that late last month, on March 23, the state government said the governor had gone into self-isolation after he had contact with the son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who had tested positive for COVID-19.

According to his media aide, Mukhtar Gidado, Governor Mohammed met with Atiku’s son – on his way to Bauchi from Lagos – on the plane where both men shook hands and exchanged pleasantries.

The result of the test was positive while that of others who took the test with him, including his family and aides, came out negative.
