Mr. Shuaibu allegedly committed the first robbery on February 27 when he walked into a Santander Bank and demanded that the teller hand him cash, threatening to shoot if the employee did not comply.

Subsequently, he had failed in an attempt to rob a Bank of America but became successful later in the month when he robbed a separate Santander Bank location.

Mr Shuaibu is reported to have walked into an HSBC bank on Monday, where he handed a note to the teller demanding money.
