A combined team of policemen attached to the Gowon Estate and Shasha police divisions foiled an attempt to attack a branch of Access Bank in Akowonjo, Lagos State on Friday.
PUNCH Metro learnt that some aggrieved customers stormed the premises of the bank to protest over their inability to withdraw money.
Their demand, however, degenerated when one of the customers started to hurl stones at the building.
The tension was doused following the intervention of the policemen who were drafted to the scene to restore order.
Our correspondent also sighted the security operatives with two police vans at the entrance of a Keystone bank adjacent the Access Bank.
