A mentally unstable man reportedly attacked some people who queued to use an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) at an old generation bank at Kabba, Okene road in Lokoja yesterday.
According to Daily Post, the mad man reportedly used a hammer ho hit the machine, destroying the machine in the process.
People on the queue to use the machine took their heels on sighting the action of the mad man because he was mistaken for a robber.
The incident, which reportedly threw ATM users into confusion and kept them on their heels scuttling for safety, happened at about 9 a.m after the suspect was mistaken for a robber on a mission to rob customers at the ATM.
He also rendered the two ATM machines useless leaving the customers with no option.
Meanwhile, the Kogi state police public relations officer, Collins Sola Adebayo, confirmed the incident, and revealed that the suspect was shot on his leg.
In another development, a recent incident shared by a Facebook user might totally change the orientation of everyone who thinks there is no big deal in helping out other people at ATM points.
