Customer Sets Bank On Fire In Abia State (Video)


An infuriated man believed to be bank’s customer has taken law into his hand by setting the local bank on fire.

In an amateur video made available to 9News Nigeria by an eye witness, the angry man was seen emerging from the banking hall already in flames with a gallon of what was believed to be petrol and walked in a fast pace to the bank’s ATM machine and poured the petrol all over the ATM machine before torching it with a lighter.

In the midst of onlookers, the man walked out of the bank’s premises towards a motorbike parked in front of the bank and set it ablaze as well before moving towards a parked vehicle to torch it as well.

With the intervention of the on-lookers, the angry man left the vehicle and started running upwards on the main road where the local bank was situated.

At this point sound of siren believed to be that of the police was heard before the man got out of sight.

As at time of this report, the cause of this incident has not been confirmed neither has 9News Nigeria been able to confirm the identity of the culprit and the particular bank involved.

Contacts are still being made to confirm the details of this story.
