The Ogun State Police Command has arrested four staff of ZEFA Microfinance Bank, situated at Abule Ijoko Lemode area of Ifo local government, over the death of 50 years old Vivian Omo, wife to one of their debtors.
According to the Ogun State Police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the four suspects were arrested on the 10th of May, 2023.
The image maker explained that trouble started when the bank staff visited the home of the deceased to ask for the payment of a loan taken from the bank by the deceased’s husband, but they were told that the man was not at home.
Not satisfied with the woman’s explanation about the whereabouts of her husband, the bank staff decided to pack all the electronics in the house to their office, a move which was resisted by the deceased.
Oyeyemi said: “While the deceased was struggling with the bank’s staff, one of them pushed her and she fell down and was unconscious. She was there and then rushed to hospital for medical attention, but was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty.
“The report was quickly lodged at Agbado divisional headquarters by the daughter of the deceased, consequence upon which the DPO Agbado division, CSP Awoniyi Adekunle, quickly led his detectives to the scene where four staff of the bank namely: Badmus Olalekan, Ajibade Oludare, Eniola Aduragbemi and Femi Oloko were arrested.
“The corpse has been deposited at Ifo General Hospital morgue for autopsy. The Commissioner of Police, CP Olanrewaju Oladimeji, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the Homicide section of the state Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation. He also warned loan agencies to stop taking laws into their hands in the process of recovering loans from their debtors, as anyone caught in such act will be arrested and prosecuted.”BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
