The group of armed men stormed the Otun bank and initially succeeded in breaking the bank security door before their mission was thwarted by the swift arrival of a combined team of police, military, and local security outfits.

This led to a shootout and death of the policeman as the robbers escaped on foot. Abutu stated that perpetrators of the crime will be tracked and arrested.
