The siege at the First Bank in Mpape, Abuja, which started Saturday morning, has ended.
The robbers, who had been trapped in the back, have been arrested by a joint team of the police and military.
One of them was eventually killed by the superior firepower of the security agent.
Some eyewitness claimed that a staff, was also nabbed.
The attackers were said to have alleged that “an insider” was working with them.
