The Total filling station in Thabo Mbeki Street was still closed for business at 09:30 this morning (Friday) after it was allegedly robbed at around 03:00.
An employee who requested to remain anonymous, told Polokwane Observer that explosives were used to gain access to the safe that was located in the office. “The robbers ordered staff to lie down on the floor during the ordeal and fled with an undisclosed amount of money. Our electronic systems were also damaged and we can therefore do no business at the moment,” he said.
Limpopo Police Spokesperson Motlafelo Mojapelo confirmed that the matter is being investigated.
