The incident took place at the debtor’s residence in the Abule Ijoko Lemode area of the Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State. The suspects were reportedly attempting to seize the debtor’s belongings.

SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the incident and stated that the four suspects were apprehended by the state police command.

According to Oyeyemi, the bank staff, identified as Badmus Olalekan, Ajibade Oludare, Eniola Aduragbemi, and Femi Oloko, were arrested on Wednesday.

Oyeyemi explained, ‘Trouble started when the bank staffers visited the home of the deceased to ask for the payment of a loan taken from the bank by the deceased’s husband, but they were informed that he was not present. Unsatisfied with the woman’s explanation, the bank staffers attempted to seize all the electronics in the house, leading to a confrontation with the deceased.’

‘During the altercation, one of the bank employees pushed the deceased, causing her to fall and lose consciousness. She was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead by the attending doctor.’

The daughter of the deceased promptly reported the incident to the Agbado Divisional Headquarters, resulting in the arrest of the four bank staff. The body of the deceased has been taken to the Ifo General Hospital morgue for an autopsy.

The state Commissioner of Police, Olanrewaju Oladimeji, has instructed the immediate transfer of the suspects to the Homicide Section of the state Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.”
