Robbers Kill Prophet Conducting Spiritual Bath In Ondo

Mimiko, CoP Visit Robbery Scene

One of the alleged victims of Tuesday bank robbery in Ikare, Ondo State, was an unnamed prophet killed while conducting spiritual cleansing on a help-seeker. The prophets death, and his church members, but not the effect of the spiritual bath, became evident after the four-hour robbery spell on three banks and villagers ended. Also, a former Ondo State chairman of the National Union of Roads Transport Workers, NURTW, Ezekiel Ile-Ola Gold, a 10-year old and his father were among the dead. About 8 policemen, and 10 others, were felled by the robbers, who simultaneously attacked the three banks located closely to one another. Apparently determined, the robbers, numbering 15 and adorning military police vests, were said to have stormed the area in Volkswagen Golf cars and a bus. The state Governor Olusegun Mimiko and Police Commissioner Issac Eke visited the robbery scene yesterday.
