We gathered the Bank insisted that they bring the man to the bank, his relatives went to the hospital where he was on admission to bring him and on getting to the bank, the man could not walk into the banking hall. His relative went inside to inform the bank that the man is in the premises of the bank but could not access the bank due to his sickness but they were asked to go to court for affidavit, he told them that the court was on strike. At that point, the bank security alerted the man’s relative inside that his person is doing as if he want to die and on getting to the man, the man had already given up the ghost. The angry relative is seen in a viral video, crying and cursing the bank to take the corpse away as the money in the bank is their only hope of getting funds.

He said the man died of high BP not any fault of ours.EWR NOTE– How this bank  hurriedly conducted an autopsy on him and the result is out so quickly is still one of the 15th wonders of Nigeria.
