Four robbers who were engaged in a shoot out with police officers for more than four hours on Tuesday, November 23, have escaped the scene.
According to the area police boss, the four disguised themselves as clients when all the bank’s staff and clients were evacuated.
Speaking to the press, Nyanza Regional Commissioner Magu Mutindika noted that the robbers must have changed clothes before leaving undetected.
“We have in our possession a man’s shirt. We suspect that the robbers had a change of clothes and left the banking hall during evacuation of distressed clients,” he stated.
Mutindika had earlier complained that the operation to stop the heist was derailed after the thugs lobbed teargas on the officers responding to quell the crime.
