Aggrieved Union Bank customer causes a scene at the banking hall

A man was recorded within a Union Bank hall at Agege, losing his temper and calling bank officials 'ole' over 20,000 Naira going missing from his account.   In the midst of the economic difficulties that the ordinary citizens of this country already face, Nigerian banks have themselves become a source of economic terror to their customers. It almost seems as though there are no more reliable banking services available for Nigerian bank customers as most customers are now faced with equally bad options to choose from. The clip shows a man losing his cool and demanding that monies that were inexplicably deducted from his account be refunded immediately.
