At the police station, the gunmen were said to have killed two policemen on duty. Others killed, according to witnesses include a security guard at the bank, shot around the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) stand and an aged man who was passing by at the time of the attack.

They were said to have announced their arrival with gun shots which sent residents scampering for safety. They blew the bank’s security door with dynamite to gain access into the banking hall and made away with unspecified amount of  money in the raid which lasted for about an hour.
