Gunmen Attack Trader At ATM Stand In Benin
Tina Osaretin, a trader, was attacked by gunmen in the early hours of Wednesday while operating an Automated Teller Machine(ATM) in a bank along Uselu-Lagos road.
Tina, a meat seller, told the Correspondent that she got to the ATM stand by 6.00 a.m. to withdraw cash for her to get to the abattoir early.
“When I got to the stand, I saw two young boys standing on the left and right side, about the ages of 15 and 16.
“I knew something was wrong when I inserted my card. The boys stood behind me immediately. One said: “cooperate, if not I go shoot you.’’
“They collected N150, 000 from me, but I thank God I was not shot, she said.
Tina pleaded with the Edo Government to provide more security personnel, especially during these ember months.
She said Nigeria would be a better place if corruption and stealing could be tackled.
Efforts of the Correspondent to reach the Public Relations Officer of Zone 5 Police Command in Edo State proved abortive.
