Earlier on this afternoon, reports streamed in that an Equity Bank branch had been attacked by armed robbers who were out to make away with the money as per the reports that we have with us.

However, the incident was very vague as there has been no communication from the authorities who was at the scene during the robbery this afternoon.

According to the available reliable reports that we have with us this afternoon, Equity Bank had revealed what happened at the Nairobi West Branch earlier on today.

The bank has said that one armed man gained access to the banking hall and wanted to make away with the money that was available at the bank at the time.

It is not yet clear if the man was able to make away with the loot but Equity has said that there are authorities currently at the scene who are investigating the situation.

Equity Bank has said that they have closed the branch for the meantime as the authorities deal with the situation which is now under control.

They have urged their customers to access their money through other means like the ATM or their mobile phones as the situation is being handled.
