How Lagos Lawyer Stormed First Bank, Disrupts Operations, Exchanged Blows with Police Officer over Missing Money

Spread the love

There was pandemonium at the Ikotun branch of First Bank PLC in the Igando-Ikotun LCDA of Alimosho LGA, after a 43-year-old legal practitioner, Barrister Enyi Sunday, disrupted activities at the bank over the disappearance of an undisclosed amount of money from his account in the bank.


According to media reports, the fracas attracted the attention of the Police officers attached to the bank, who attempted to stop him from entering the bank in order to see the Manager in a bid to ask why the money in his account was emptied.

The stoppage of entrance led to a serious fight between Barrister Sunday and one of the Police officers attached to the bank, Inspector Siyaka Nuhu and both injured themselves in the process.

The Police at the Ikotun Division was contacted and mobilized; they went to the bank and intervened. They overpowered and arrested Barrister Sunday and transferred him to Area M Command, Idimu, over his conduct at the bank.

During interrogation, Barr. Sunday told the Police that First Bank siphoned the money in his account and when he went to the branch as a customer to ask to know why the bank would tamper with his money, he was prevented from entering the bank.

However, the Police found him culpable of disrupting operations at the bank, assaulting Inspector Nuhu, and tearing his uniform in the process. He was subsequently charged before the Ejigbo Magistrates Court for conduct likely to cause a breach of public peace and assault, wherein he pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor, SP Benedict Aigbokhan, did not object to his being granted bail because it was a bailable offence.

But the defendant told the Court that it lacked jurisdiction over the matter because the matter of the bank-customer relations was a Federal Government matter, which has a higher jurisdiction.

Presiding Magistrate, Mrs K.A. Ariyo, ruled that the offence was a criminal offence and subsequently granted him bail in the sum of #20,000 with one surety in like sum.

However, he was remanded in custody at the Correctional Centre at Kirikiri town, Lagos, pending when he will perfect his bail while the matter was adjourned till November 29 for mention.
