This happened in front of Zenith Bank at New Market Road in Onitsha yesterday.
I went out to make a job enquiry in the afternoon near the bank and heard a gunshot while I was at the place.
On coming out, I saw a crowd gathered in front of the bank and asked a lady near me what happened. She said that two men on a motorcycle snatched the handbag of a lady near the place and that the policemen on duty at the bank threw the men off the motorcycle and they ran away on foot with several buses and tricycles going after them.
I was about moving further from the place when I saw another crowd dragging a young man with them towards the bank. Guess who? One of the handbag snatchers. He was lucky to get just a few slaps from the bank policemen before the men of Rapid Response Squad took him away.
The guy in white striped black shirt is the culprit.
