Bandits in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Tuesday killed a police sergeant, identified as William Relomer, and two persons, who were occupants of a Toyota Tundra car.
The bandits immediately carted away an undisclosed sum of money left in the vehicle in an operation that lasted less than six minutes.
An eyewitness said the incident happened around Waterlines Bus-stop along the ever-busy Olu Obasanjo Way at about 12.05pm on Tuesday.
The PUNCH gathered that the huge sum of money, contained in a Ghana-must-go bag, belonged to Oyigbo Local Government Area.
It was learnt that the policeman and the two others (a driver and an Oyigbo LGA official) that were shot dead had gone to a new generation bank to withdraw the money.
