The swift intervention by bank officials stopped an aggrieved customer from killing himself inside the banking hall.
Facebook user, Floyd Nzeogwu Mordi who shared a video of the incident on his page said that the hackers gained access into the man’s account and stole over N450,000.
The victim of the alleged fraud then visited his bank, lodged a complaint and they traced and froze the account of the hackers.
He was asked to go to court to obtain an affidavit to prove that he was not the one who did the alleged fraudulent transaction.
However, after getting the required court document, the bank informed him that they had unfrozen the hackers’ bank account and released the money to them.
Unable to accept the disappointing turn of events, he tied a wire around his neck to strangle himself, screaming and attempting to take his life.
The video of the development shows officials alleged to be of the United Bank For Africa (UBA) Iju branch in Lagos rescuing and calming the furious customer.
