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:

So some robbers decided to do their own Money Heist in Abuja but they failed.
They completely forgot that professor in the real money heist didn’t go to chill in Shoprite and he didn’t use GLO to communicate with themAdvertisement
Ibadan, ikeja, warri, & Ikorodu are all going to prison now😹

What if this is all planned out.
What if the robbers just wanted to get arrested to stage a prison break from Kiri Kiri
I'm sure the unknown Proff of this Money Heist has something up his sleeves

The professor used 20yrs to plan for the Money Heist but some boys from ijebu-ode think they can infiltrate and come out successfully after just a day of practice, lmao😂😂..
I'm just happy that we watched the season 4 before the producers released it…

The Nigerian armed forces deserves some accolades for this bravery they put in play today. I haven’t seen the Money Heist movie but I believe they played the role better than the acts in the movie. As for the armed robbers, soapy awaits them inside Kiri Kiri.
