Some Nigerians have taken to social media to react after a group of armed robbers were caught inside First Bank of Nigeria branch in Mpape area of Abuja following a failed operation.


TheCable had reported how the gunmen gained entry into the bank on Saturday morning after sporadic gunshots, but were unable to leave following a siege by operatives of the country’s police in collaboration with the army.

The robbers would later meet their waterloo during an exchange of gunfire with the security personnel, leading to the death of one of the attackers while four others were arrested.

Following the drama that played out — which is typical of what is seen in action movies — a number of Nigerians took to social media platform, especially Twitter, to give their different takes on the incident.


As of the time this report was filed, ‘money heist’ is trending on Twitter.

“Armed robbers trapped inside Abuja bank. Money heist gone wrong,” said a user.

“The Money Heist would have gone well but there was traffic so the Professor couldn’t delay the police force and that was the time Glo decided to fuck up. LA Casa De Naira gone wrong,” said another user.


Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
