A source told the News Agency of Nigeria that the robbers invaded the town at about 6 p.m. after workers had closed.

They were said to have first driven to the Police station in the town where they killed two policemen on duty, before heading straight to a first generation bank in an ambulance containing a casket loaded with guns.

Others killed, according to the source, were a security guard at the bank who was shot around the ATM stand and an aged man who was passing by at the time of the attack.

The robbers were said to have entered Ijero-Ekiti through Aramoko-Ekiti road.

They were said to have announced their arrival with gunshots which sent residents scampering for safety.
