An Awka-based businessman on Wednesday lost N500, 000 to armed robbers in what has become a growing case of robberies in Awka, the Anambra State capital.
It was barely a month when probably the same robbers attempted to snatch money from another business man on the same spot but were fought to a stand-still before the robbers took to their heels. This is also about the fourth time incident of armed robbers is reported at Awka.
Independent learnt that the three armed robbers broke the side glass of the Toyota Corolla car parked at Aroma Junction on the expressway took the money and fled in a waiting car.
It was gathered that the armed robbers trailed the businessman (names withheld) from a new generation bank located along Enugu-Onitsha Expressway where he withdrew the money.
Independent recalled that a similar robbery took place at the same spot barely one month ago when a business man simply identified as Chidi was trailed from the same new generation bank where he withdrew N200, 000.
