[FILES] Ondo State

Three persons, including a broadcast journalist, Olubunmi Afuye, were yesterday killed during an armed robbery in a bank in Ilara-Mokin, Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State.
Sources within the town recounted that the armed robbers stormed the bank in a commando-style and operated for several minutes without any challenge from security operatives.
According to them, the robbers used dynamite to blow off the doors and other security-coded vaults within the bank to cart away undisclosed amounts of money.
The robbers killed Afuye, a policeman and a commercial motorcyclist.
Afuye recently resigned from one of the state government media stables to join a private university in the town as the Public Relations Officer (PRO).
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Tee-Leo Ikoro, confirmed the incident.
