Co-operative bank, isiolo branch, has been robbed Sh30 Million by a gang of robbers who were helped by one of the employees.

The robbers are said to have accessed the bank on Sunday evening after colluding with one of the employees who opened the door for them.

The three thieves tied other four workers who were in the bank and escaped with the money together with the employee who had helped them.

Isiolo police boss Charles Ontita confirmed the incident and divulged that incident took place after the officers who were manning the station left for their respective stations.

Mr Ontita announced that investigations into the incident had started adding that CCTV footage would be reviewed to help in the probe.

The police boss disclosed that the four workers who were at the bank had also been arrested for investigation purposes.
