A middle-aged man has reportedly collapsed and died in front of a branch of the First City Monument Bank, FCMB, at Ikwerre Road, Mile 1 of Rivers state.

The death was occasioned by inhuman treatment by the customer service officials of the bank, a Tweep, Dokubo, Kenneth Promise #EndSARS posted on his Twitter handle @dokubo_kenneth.

The report said the man (whose name was withheld) made an unsuccessful attempt to withdraw money, as the bank asked him to do an affidavit in order to have access to his money.

According to the Twitter user, the victim went with his next of kin to the bank as judicial workers had been on strike, jeopardising any process of swearing an affidavit.

Dokubo tweeted, “Man dies at @MyFCMB in Port Harcourt due to frustration and unfriendly treatment by the customer service attendants of a bank.”

The man was said to have been vomiting and begging having been in the queue for five hours before he collapsed and died.

“An eyewitness at the scene of the incident disclosed that a man who hails from Asari-Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State, a customer of (First City Monument Bank) FCMB died in front of the bank.

“He was refused access to his own money since Friday even when he came with his next of kin. He was asked to go to the court to get an affidavit knowing the court is not in session.

She added, ‘The man was vomiting and at the same time begging for him to have access to his own money yet he was denied. After he was left unattended to for more than 5 hours, he just died now a few minutes ago at FCMB, Education Bus Stop, Ikwerre Road, Mile 1.”
