Dare-devil armed robbers have attacked another bullion van on the outskirts of Ondo State along the Lagos-Ore expressway.
The van was reportedly on its way to Araromi-Obu in Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo from Edo State.
Three persons, including two policemen and one civilian were shot dead, while two other policemen were injured in the attack by the armed robbers.
An unspecified amount of money was carted away by the bandits who forced the bullion van open after the attack.
Confirming the incident to newsmen, the Police Public Relations Officer in Ondo, Funmilayo Odunlami said a detachment of policemen has been drafted to the area and the operatives were on the trail of the robbers.
Wednesday’s robbery comes a week after a bullion van was attacked at the Emure-Ile Junction along the Akure-Owo Highway.
A policeman was also shot during the incident which occurred on Wednesday last week, although the bullion van was not conveying any cash when it was attacked by robbers.
