A source, who spoke with our correspondent, on Monday, said the robbery suspects, operating on a motorcycle, snatched the money from an official of a cooperative society in front of the State Hospital, Asubiaro.

It was gathered that the cooperative official was coming from a bank and was about to enter the hospital when the incident occurred.

Investigation showed that the cooperative society was being run by some health workers at the hospital and some of its members were waiting for the official that went to the bank.

According to an eyewitness, one of the robbers suddenly alighted from the motorcycle and cornered the cooperative official.

The eyewitness said, "It was like a movie. Some members of the cooperative society were at the gate waiting for the man when one of the two men on the okada jumped down and pointed a gun at the man.

"He pointed the gun at the head of the man and threatened to blow off his brains. The man handed over the money in a large polythene bag to the robber.

"The robber pocketed his gun in order for him to be able to carry the bag briskly. It was when people at the gate saw that he had pocketed his gun and was about running to the waiting bike that they overwhelmed him.

"When the guy on the motorcycle saw that they had overpowered him, he took off on the bike."

The Commissioner of Police, Osun State Command, Mrs. Kalafite Adeyemi, confirmed the incident.

She said, "We have charged the case to court. The victim had gone to collect the money from the bank; he raised the alarm when he was attacked. One of the robbers fell and he was overpowered."
