The money that was stolen in Wednesday’s daylight robbery at Bank South Pacific Fiji’s Samabula branch was “not a huge amount”, the bank’s head of marketing, Nirdesh Singh told FijiLive.

Singh said he can not divulge the exact amount that was stolen, but confirmed it’s not worth what the robbers will get when they are caught.

He also confirmed the branch will be re-opened within a week with repair works to be completed early next week.

BSP's Samabula branch was robbed by five masked men on Wednesday afternoon. Authorities have confirmed the robbery was committed by the five prisoners who broke out of the Naboro Medium Facility Monday night.

Four of the five were captured Friday evening. Also in police custody are two accomplices while the fifth escapee, Isoa Waqa remains at large.
