Published

on

Some robbers who had gathered that Air Peace regularly leaves large sums of money in its vault from Friday to Sunday, have broke into the office and carted away the vault over the past weekend.

Robbers broke into the office of Air Peace in Akure, Ondo State and robbed the airline of millions of naira over the weekend, according to SaharaReporters.
Air Peace employees discovered that the office had been robbed when they resumed work on Monday.
It was learnt that the robbers had gathered that Air Peace regularly leaves large sums of money in its vault from Friday to Sunday.
Acting on this information, the robbers broke into the office and carted away the vault over the weekend while the business was closed.
A source who confirmed the incident, said the robbers broke into the office through a crack in a wall.
 
“The hoodlums burgled into the office of the airline through a small cracked wall and stole valuables including the vault. I learned that they couldn’t immediately break the vault in the short process and hence the reason for taking it away.
 
“In fact, some booking tickets and other things were carted during the operation, which only lasted few minutes.
 
“The police have arrested all the staff of the airline and they are currently being interrogated at the Oba Ile police station. Even some management staff of the airline have arrived from Lagos over the case because it was so shocking,” he said.
A source at the Oba Ile Police Station in the Akure North Local Government Area of the state also confirmed the robbery case in Akure.
The source said an investigation into the robbery is ongoing, adding that the security guards attached to the airport are also being interrogated.
 
“We have arrested all the people (staff) that are working in the main office of the airline, including the security guards. As I am talking to you, some of the staff are being interrogated in our station here in Oba Ile,” he said.
Femi Joseph, the spokesperson for the Ondo State Police Command, said he has yet to confirm the details of the case, noting that the case has not been reported to his office as at the time one of our correspondents made contact.
All efforts to reach the management of the Air Peace airline proved abortive as all the mobile lines provided were not connecting.

The analysts noted that foreign investors are always wary of insecurity in any economy and would begin to halt investments.

Meanwhile, investors on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, NSE, lost N113.1 billion as market capitalisation, which represents the total value of stocks traded on the Exchange fell to N14.9 trillion while Year to Date, YtD return weakened to 6.0 percent.

As a result, the NSE All-Share Index, ASI declined 75 bases points, bps or 0.7 percent to 28,449.49 points.

Activity level improved as volume and value traded rose by 9.8 percent and 44.3 percent to 326.6million units and N4.2billion respectively. The most traded stocks by volume were UBA (40.3million units), Zenith Bank (39.6million units) and Guaranty Trust Bank (38.3million units) while Guaranty Trust Bank (N1.1billion ), Zenith Bank (N800.9million) and Nestle (N479.9million) led by value.

Performance across sectors was lacklustre as all indices lost except Insurance index (0.6 percent) which was buoyed by price appreciation in WAPIC (10.0 percent). The Banking index lost the most, down 1.7 percent following losses in Guaranty Trust (-1.3 percent) and Zenith Bank (-1.2 percent).
