Armed Robbers Attacked Imo Airport, Made Away With Cash And Valuables


Early morning of Friday (9/10/2015) got rocked by armed robbers who attacked a micro-finance bank, offices of Arik and Air Peace Airlines in Sam Mbakwe Cargo Airport, Imo state. The robbers successfully made away with cash and valuables after taking over the environs from the security agencies on ground.

A staff of Arik, who decided to be anonymous, said “we are still in shock, how the robbers could have been able to operate freely without challenge with the number of security men at the Airport. It calls for serious concern because if the Airport cannot be safe, where else can be”.

The response from the Imo State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Andrew Enwerem, when contacted was; “we got the report that some hoodlums broke into a Micro Finance Bank at the airport but we did not get any report that they removed cash and no one was killed or wounded.

“Already investigation is ongoing and the two security men attached to the bank are currently being interrogated”.

More details would be made available as information develops from the crime scene
