Robbers attack bank, steal ATMs

Early yesterday morning, armed robbers who were about 12 attacked a bank at the university town of Amassoma in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of  Bayelsa State and stole some Automated Teller Machines at the location. The robbers who were armed with sophisticated weapons and dynamites escaped through the waterways.

Sources from the community said:
“The armed men threw dynamites at the walls of the bank, bringing down its fences. They gained access to the bank premises but were unable to get in after much attempt,”an eye witness said.
“They therefore blew up the walls holding the ATM machines and made away with them.” “We are now under threat from thieves, rapists and robbers. Painfully, this is the town where the Niger Delta University is situated, thereby exposing students to more danger,”.“Overtime, students have constantly faced attacks from robbers.”
However, the spokesman for the Bayelsa Police Command, Asinim Butswat, confirmed that the bank was attacked with dynamites but denied that they stole ATM machines.”
He said:
“On 12 March, 2016, at about 0035hrs, unknown gunmen in three speedboats invaded Amassoma Police Division.
“Shortly afterwards, the hoodlums attacked a bank, damaged  the ATM machines and attempted to enter the bank, but were repelled by a reinforced unit of policemen.
“No life was lost and money was not stolen. Efforts have been intensified to arrest the fleeing suspects. Investigation is ongoing.”

I believe the police's version of the story. The robbers couldn't have carried the ATM's. Do you know how heavy those things are?



Flash Fiction

At the Villa: Vol 1

Buhari sat at his desk, going through documents upon documents, talking to himself. 'When everything I am planning materializes, Nigerians will understand and know why we had to go through the initial harsh times.' He stopped flipping through a brown file in his hand when the iPad on his desk beeped. "I have told Adesina I don't want this thing on my desk." He muttered under his breath before picking it up. It was a message from MTN advertising a new tariff plan. He exited from the message section and was about to put down the tab when he had a change of thought and tapped on the small icon of the globe on the top right hand side of the rectangular device. 'Let me even see what's going on with Nigerians today.' He thought to himself. He hadn't been reading a particular popular Nigerian forum for more than 5 minutes when he gasped in shock. "Kai!" Just then, a knock at his door startled him.

"Who is it?" Buhari backed out with his face screwed up in a frown, still locked on the Ipad screen.

"It's me sir." A male voice said, and then the person popped his head through the door with a nervous smile on his face.

What's the point in destroying an ATM that you know will be useful to people? I hope they destroy all the cash in the machine while they attempt to break it open. useless thieves.
