Unknown thugs on Tuesday invaded one of the biggest and bloodiest bank in the commercial capital Blantyre First Merchant Bank (FMB) and went away with undisclosed sums of money.
According to information sourced FaceofMalawi, robberies in the process shot dead a Police officer and injured two people in the process.
Details of the robbery remain sketchy but according to eyewitness accounts, a gang armed with guns, spears and Machetes overpowered a security detail before breaking into safes and offices and getting away with a large amount of money.
Speaking in an interview with the privately owned radio [Capital FM], one of the officials from the bank said the management will hold a Press briefing later in the day to update customers on the extent of the robbery.
Since President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika ascended to power on May 20 2014, the country has experienced an increase in crimes in the country putting Malawians under panic.
Recently, the newly appointed Inspector General of Police (IG) Paul Kanyama warned criminals that they deal with them but since then nothing seems to be happening on the ground as thugs continue to terrorize Malawians across the country.
