Armed Robbers Attack Businessmen and Women in Onitsha Carting Away Millions of Naira.

 
Daredevil armed robbers on Monday morning went on rampage on the streets of Fegge in Onitsha and caused mayhem before carting away millions of naira from businessmen and women who came from various states to buy goods at the various markets in Anambra State.
 
According PM Express, the incident happened early in the morning and lasted for several hours very close to the police division in the area. Many residents and visitors who were on their way to the markets and offices were injured and also lost huge sums of money.
 
Those injured were later taken to hospitals for treatment.
 
Some of the streets affected in the morning operation were Niger, Ibadan, Okwuenu, Ojukwu and Uga and other adjoining streets in the area. Narrating how the sad incident happened, residents revealed that the robbers stormed the streets from Niger Street and forced some commercial buses conveying business people going to both bridge head and main markets to buy goods.
 
It was learnt that the men of the underworld shot sporadically and forced the victims to release their valuables.
 
Those that had little to surrender were brutally attacked and injured, but no life was reportedly lost in the process. The robbers it was gathered moved round with their motorcycles on the streets disposing residents of their valuables at gun point and escaped.
 
An eye witness who went to a supermarket at Ojukwu Street narrated his ugly experience. He said that he and others were in the supermarket when the robbers came, rounded up everybody including the staff and demanded they surrendered their valuables.
 
The robbers also picked items they needed in the superstore before they escaped. Another witness narrated how the robbers stormed a beer joint and disposed them of their phones, money and other valuables found with them.
 
He said they later went to the police, reported the matter and the police claimed that they will investigate. He however said regrettably nothing have come out of the police investigation.

However, some of the residents refused to believe the police and said the police were not interested in the protection of lives and properties but how much they will get from seizing traders goods.
