Man Slumps, Dies Inside Banking Hall After Several Hours On Queue To Withdraw New Naira Notes

A bank customer has reportedly slumped and died in a queue for long hours inside a banking hall in Agbor, Delta State.

The yet-to-be-identified man died after waiting for hours to collect his Automated Teller Machine card at the bank in Ika South Local Government Area, Delta State, Tribune reported.

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident.

“He was not trying to withdraw cash; he came to collect his ATM card,” the police spokesperson said.

The PUNCH reports that banking halls across various commercial banks in Lagos, Osun, Ekiti, and other parts of the country witnessed minimal activity as frustrated customers resorted to alternative means of cash withdrawal following the scarcity of naira notes in the banks.

PUNCH also reports  that while most banking halls in Lagos were empty due to paucity of funds in bank vaults, large crowds had formed outside some of the few banks that were rumoured to be preparing to load their Automated Teller Machines.
