The suspects were said to have gained entry into the banking hall after shooting sporadically into the air to scare people away.

However, their hope of successful and well-planned operation was dashed as they came to the end of the road after they were trapped inside the bank.

This was as a result of the prompt response by security operatives made up of men of the Nigeria Police Forces, Nigerian Army, and the Department of State Services (DSS) who positioned themselves strategically in the area.

“I am proud of the pro-activeness of the Nigerian Army and Police in foiling the bank robbery in Abuja,” It is my hope that this will be the face of a reinvigorated security in the New Year.” Atiku said in a tweet.
