Though no life was lost in the incident, the robbers, who arrived the town some minutes after 2:00 pm, carted away money in the operation which lasted about 30 minutes.
Residents said the hoodlums came to the town in two vehicles through the Ikere Ekiti road axis.
They were said to have shot sporadically into the air to scare away residents, including customers and bank officials.
Caleb Ikechukwu, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, confirmed the incident.
He said the robbers attacked the bank with dynamites to gain entry into the banking hall.
He said operatives of the force are on the robbers’ trail and will bring them to book. He urged members of the public to go about their normal activities without fear.
