The robbers, who broke into the bank around 10am on Saturday, met resistance from the Police, Army and the Department of State Security, who cordoned the place minutes after responding to a distress call.
According to the Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Mariam Yusuf, four of the robbers had been arrested while one was killed in an exchange of gunfire with the Police.

The police spokesperson said that the situation had been brought under control as a joint-security team had maintained sanity in the area.

The thieves were trapped inside the bank for over four hours.
