The police, in their bid to also open fire on the robbers, cocked their AK-47 guns only for them not to fire due to a malfunction.

As a result, the robbers were able to make away with a huge undisclosed amount of money as the police failed to apprehend them due to their predicament.

Following the incident, it was discovered that the weapons the police were assigned, had not been serviced in a long while and it accounted for their failure to retaliate during the robbery.
