A robbery gang yesterday abandoned N6 million in Sagamu, Ogun State, while trying to escape from the police.
It was learnt that the robbers blew open the Automated Teller Machine (ATM)of a new generation bank, using methane gas and other objects, and stole N6 million.
Sources said the hoodlums abandoned their loot and escaped into the bush behind the bank as policemen in an Amoured Personnel Carrier (APC) approached the scene.
Other items abandoned by the robbers were two gas cylinders containing methane.
Police spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi said the hoodlums attacked the bank in the early hours of yesterday, but a police patrol team foiled the operation.
