FirstBank customer slumps, dies in Delta over naira notes scarcity (Photo)

A yet to be identified man allegedly slumped and died at a bank in Agbor, Delta state after waiting for several hours to withdraw cash.

The incident happened inside FirstBank banking hall on Thursday afternoon, February 2, 2023.

It was gathered that the incident happened inside the banking hall on Thursday afternoon as Nigerians decry the scarcity of new Naira notes in commercial banks across the country.

A Facebook user, Omole Mike, who shared the news, said the man died after futile attempts to withdraw cash from Frist Ban in Agbor.

He wrote, “Just now, at about 1:30 pm. Somebody collapsed and died in the First bank of Nigeria, Agbor Branch. The Date is on 02-02-2023. May his Soul Rest in Peace. It is well.”

But the police have dismissed the account, saying the customer was at the bank to collect his Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card.

Delta Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Bright Edafe, said “He was not trying to withdraw cash, he came to collect his ATM card.”
