An automated teller machine stationed at the Polaris Bank branch in Rivers State University (RSU) has been allegedly broken into and emptied by unknown gunmen in the wee hours of Wednesday.

The robbers who, eyewitnesses alleged, were dressed in police uniforms, stormed the campus at about 3 AM after ordering the school’s security guards to open the university’s main gate.

Proceeding to the motor park where the bank is situated, they tied up the bank’s security guard and some drivers sleepiníg in their mini buses.

Reports reaching us reveal that the robbers went about their business unchallenged; completely emptied the contents of the teller machine, and got away in one of the mini buses.

As at the time of filing this report, the management of Polaris Bank is yet to disclose the amount of money lost to the incident.
