A female bank staff of the Fina Trust MicroFinance Bank, Charity Edosa Omosirie, had a nasty experience in the Isheri-Oshun area of the Igando-Ikotun LCDA of Alimosho LGA after she went to recover a loan from customers and was attacked and stripped naked in public.
Reports state that the incident happened at Oke Imoye Street, where Charity went to recover the loan from Ifeanyi Chidubem and Angela Israel before she was assaulted and disgraced publicly. The suspects have, however, been arrested and charged before the Court for conspiracy and assault.
According to the Police, the defendants went to the bank, borrowed an undisclosed amount of money as a loan, and promised to pay back the loan at a particular period with certain conditions attached. However, when the period given to them elapsed, they were unable to repay the money.
The bank management then sent their staff, Charity, to recover the debt from them. But on getting there, the defendants reportedly grabbed, attacked, and stripped her naked in public. The matter was then reported to the Police and they were arrested.
They were, subsequently, charged before the Ejigbo Magistrates Court for the alleged offence and they pleaded not guilty. The prosecutor, SP Benedict Aigbokhan, then asked the Court to give a date for the hearing since they pleaded not guilty to enable the Police to prove that they actually committed the offence that brought them before the Court.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs K.A. Ariyo, granted them bail in the sum of #300,000 with two sureties in like sum. They were, however, remanded in custody at the Correctional Centre at Kirikiri, pending when they will perfect their bail conditions, while the matter was adjourned till January 31, 2023, for mention.
