Meanwhile, two "gentlemen" from Ghana were captured in viral video satisfying themselves with drinks from a supermarket without getting noticed by the shopkeepers.
The young men whose identities are yet unknown appeared to be close friends who carefully planned the plot and took along another accomplice to record them.
They were captured taking different varieties of drinks, opening up the seals, filling their mouths with them and then returning them safely on the shelves.
The gentlemen looked very excited at the success of the secret plot as they were seen grinning from ear to ear with each drink they took.
Perhaps, this should serve as a strong warning to owners of supermarkets and local shops to guard their products more zealously or install CCTV cameras at all corners.
