The timely intervention of the police in Enugu prevented the lynching of Mr Kingsley Ubenyi, the Managing Director of Kesley Mega Micro-Finance Bank, by the bank’s aggrieved customers on Friday.
The spokesman for the Police Command in Enugu, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the rescue of the bank boss came as a result of prompt intervention of a police patrol team after a security tip-off by some members of the public.
Amaraizu said the incident happened at about 5pm on Wednesday at the De-Dome Event Centre in New Haven, Enugu.
He said reports reaching the police indicated that hundreds of aggrieved customers of the bank were seen striking the managing director, who was forced to sit in his vehicle, which was later damaged by the irate crowd.
“The aggrieved customers maintained that they are customers of the micro-finance bank and that despite repeated efforts to withdraw their money in their savings accounts with the bank, no light was seen at the end of the tunnel.
“Not long after, a meeting between the customers and the managing director was convened at De Dome event centre, New Haven, Enugu, where the bank boss tried to explain the difficulties faced by his bank over the payment of customers’ money.
“This (the explanation) did not go down well with the aggrieved customers, who got violent and descended heavily on him before the intervention of the police operatives,’’ he said.
Amaraizu, however, said the aggrieved customers were advised to be law-abiding and to seek redress by taking the lawful step to access their monies.
“The managing director is currently receiving treatment at a nearby hospital,’’ he said at the time of writing this report.
