“Two staff members were present at the time, and they were restrained but escaped unharmed,” the company said.
An undisclosed sum of money was stolen.
A case of armed robbery and theft has been opened to the police.
The matter is still under investigation, the company said.
“Unfortunately, security footage of the theft has been leaked to the media, which is regrettable. This has most certainly compromised the investigation as well as the safety of Inter Africa BDC (Bureau de Change) workers,” management said. .
