A policeman attached to a UBA branch in Abule Egba area of Lagos, beat one of the bank’s customers, before attempting to stab him right inside the banking hall.
The incident occurred this afternoon when the customer approached some of the employees at the bank to complain about how it has been difficult to withdraw money from his bank account.
Eyewitnesses narrated that the policeman was called in to escort the young man out of the hall since he had begun to shout at the employees. However, the officer became unnecessarily dramatic and began to slap the customer continuously.
Reports also confirmed that the policeman brought out a knife at a point and threatened the victim with it.
When the branch’s manager realized that the issue had become full-blown chaos, he tried to make amendments by asking the young man to go with him to his office. However, other angry customers snubbed his pleas and walked out of the bank with the victim.
