Tunde was accused of a missing 1.2million from Eco bank, Ladipo branch where he worked sometime late last year. He was asked to refund the money amount. According to Tunde then someone posted d money with his system. However Tunde made effort to repay d money, his account was put on hold and that of his wife who works with the bank was also put on hold. (they could no longer make withdrawals from their acct). Tunde was able to repay 600k before the events that led to his arrest.

On sunday the 16th of feb, Tunde had a fire accident in his residence, his generator exploded, leaving burns in his hands and legs. Tunde went with d burns to the office on monday to show his branch manager and explain the fact that he wont be able to stay at work for the day.
On Tuesday 18th february, Tunde was on his way to clinic and some persons ecobank called his wife to inform her that they were coming to arrest her at her branch since d husband has absconded.

She quickly placed a call to her husband to inform him and her husband reported immediately to work abandoning his treatment due to the threat. Tunde was arrested at work on Tuesday and taken to the divisional headquarters at Ikoyi where he was locked up for 3 days.

All efforts to get his bail went futile as the police insisted that based on the instruction of the bank, they must get the outstanding. His lawyer was asked to bring 1 million and he told dem bail was free and he cant raise such. In the course of arguement the police escalated d debt to 2.4 million and the lawyer reminded them he only had an outstanding of 600k.

Tunde was tortured as usual by the police in the cell and on thursday morning his mother in-law and brother visited the station, but was again urged by the police to quickly go and get money. They went to use the atm and on their way back, they saw an ambulance and wen they peeped into it, they saw Tunde’s cloths drenched in blood, his mouth foaming and it was also discovered later that a coke bottle cover was placed in his pocket.

The police started alleging poison that he took a poisonous coke. Now am wondering, poison from where? This is the story so far. We are waiting for autopsy results but the media must be at alert… the process must b corruption free. Eco bank and the NPF will be doing all they can to bribe as many as possible….anyone who takes bribe on this issue will die a miserable death in Jesus name!

I don't believe that police will ask for 1m for his bail, there are so many people who die by poison in police cell, when there relativies will poision them while in police cell that is why police do ask people to tast there food bf given it poeple in d cell

this whole story's just messed up...

his employer got him arrested, knowing fully well he needed medical treatment. i don't doubt that he was tortured in prison. what i don't get is why they had to poison him.
frothing/foaming in the mouth often results from poisoning. these pple are no better than the man who stabbed his wife and i bet they're going to go scot-free. some justice system in nigeria. criminals in work-clothes.

But why will the police detain someone for more than 1day where there is a competent court in the area? If am the family I will sue the police and the bank for 1billion naira compensation. Period

police have right to detain someone more than 24hrs if it is belive that securing his bai will joperdize the investigation, if the suspect is prompt to denger and if the offence is felonious and is punishable more than 7year above or death sentence
