A huge drama played out on the 3rd of December that would have turned violent but for the timely intervention of the operatives of the New Division of the Nigeria police Enugu State Police Command. The managing Director of a Microfinance Bank identified as one Ubenyi Kingsley (pictured above) was saved on time from being lynched by angry customers after he was held hostage and given a severe beating.
The aggrieved customers maintained that they are customers of the micro finance bank and that despite repeated efforts to withdraw their money in their savings account with the bank.
A meeting of customers and Mr Ubenyi was conveyed at De Dome event centre New Haven Enugu where the managing Director was trying to explain the difficulties faced by his bank over the payment of customers’ money.
The explanation did not go down well with the aggrieved customers. They turned violent and descended heavily on the operator of the micro finance bank before the intervention of the police operatives.
Meanwhile, the aggrieved customers were advised by the operatives to be law abiding and take necessary lawful step on their case. Kingsley is currently receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital.
