The source said the owner of the store, who was vigilant enough to discover that the gun the suspected armed robber was carrying was a toy gun, grabbed him and screamed for help.

“We heard an unusual noise from one of the stores in the upstairs and we rushed to see what was happening only to meet a man with a pistol rushing down from one of the apartments; then we decided to run for our dear lives,” the witness told Nigerian Tribune.
