In other news, a video of a mad man issuing threats at the premises of a bank has gone viral.

In the video, the mad man is seen holding a megaphone and demanding that all the monies in the bank be given to him.

He then threatens to kill anyone who tries to stop him but that does little to change the mind of a police officer walks towards him.

The policeman asks him to drop his weapon but the mad man refuses; he then advances towards the officer.

The policeman then fired a warning shot as he fled but this soon changed as other officers joined in to help restrain the mad man.
