Armed bandits yesterday raided three banks and destroyed a police outpost in Auchi Edo state.

Eyewitnesses said the robbers invaded Auchi through Wareke-Auchi road after dislodging a Nigerian Army checkpoint leading to Auchi township.

The armed robbers then proceeded to raze down the Auchi Police command after successfully robbing GT and Access banks in the town.

A bank manager from GT bank was kidnapped and later released.

Two soldiers and several civilians including students of the Auchi Polytechnic were reportedly injured.
