Dare devil armed robbers struck yesterday morning along Ovie Palace road,Effurun, in what could be likened to a “Terminator” series. The incidence which happened at about 10:40am yesterday (by KW junction) saw residents and passersby scrambling for safety. Multiple gunshots rented the air. By the time the robbers were done, liveschoolnwes.com.ng grapevine learnt that,a pretty young lady, Student of the Delta State University (DELSU) lay in her pool of blood, on the driver’s seat.
A neighbour, with whom we all rushed to the scene of the incident, identified the victim as the daughter of a notable politician in the State (not verified).
Eyewitnesses say the robbers, after shooting their victim,made straight to carry a bag of money from the victim’s boot before escaping through the road that links the Ovie Palace road to the G.R.A. The student is believed to have made some cash withdrawals from one of the banks along PTI road. Although the victim was quickly rushed to the hospital by some good Nigerians, there are doubts as to her chances of survival.
This incidence is one too many along that road (Ovie Palace Road,Effurun). This is because today’s incidence is about the fourth in the last 5/6 weeks. Sadly,despite the high rate of robbery along that road,especially between KW junction and the “Fried fish spot”, no measures have been put in place to check the menace.
WARNING: As the Yuletide seasons draw nearer, be security conscious. As much as possible, avoid huge cash (conspicuous) movement. Apparently for those who live around, banking transactions in banks along the PTI road have become increasingly risky. In all,let’s exercise great caution.
