By Andah John

At least three people have been killed and several others wounded including a police officer, as armed robbers attacked a Zenith bank branch in Owerri, the Imo state capital.

It was gathered from an eyewitness that the armed robbers, numbering about 12, invaded the bank at about 2:00 pm on Wednesday and shot sporadically into the air to scare customers away after over-powering the security operatives on duty.

It was further learned that the gunmen carted away a yet to be disclosed amount of money.

For now, only three people, who are yet to be identified, have been confirmed dead.
