Following a failed bank robbery attempt that left armed robbers trapped inside a branch of First bank while security operatives blocked the entrance, Nigerians have taken to social media to react.
The armed robbers who had successfully gained entry into the bank at Mpape, Abuja on Saturday morning were unable to leave the premises after operatives of police and Nigerian Army mount a blockade at the bank entrance.
A robber who earlier tried to escaped was reportedly shot and arrested while an exchange of gunfire with the security operatives led to the arrest of four others.
The development has sparked the reactions of many Nigerians on Twitter, as they compared the failed bank robbery to the movie, Money Heist.

The reason why these Abuja Money Heist did not succeed was because Professor was in UNILAG, closing doors and switching off lights.

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 them
Ibadan, ikeja, warri, & Ikorodu are all going to prison now😹
