The robbers, however, could not have access to the strong room of the bank where monies are kept. The eyewitnesses further indicated that the police officer who was on duty was not present at the time of the robbery.
Officials of the bank have refused to comment on the development.

Meanwhile, the bank has resumed full operations today Monday, August 31.
