Read How N100K Credit Alert Landed This Undergraduate In Police Trouble

A 26-year-old undergraduate, identified as Sunday Akande, has petitioned the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, over alleged unlawful detention.

In a letter through his lawyer F. E. Ojeikere, and copied the Commissioner of Police, Anambra State, the petitioner claimed he was arrested and detained for an offense he knew nothing about, saying he was wrongfully arrested by the police after he voluntarily reported a N100,000 transaction paid into his account.

The petitioner claimed that sometime in July 2016, he received a credit alert of N100,000 on his First Bank account with a branch on Airport Road Warri, Delta State. According to the petitioner, since he was not expecting such money from anywhere, he felt that the money must have been wrongfully paid into his account.nigeria-police-613x450-613x400He said on same day he went to the bank to bring the development to notify the bank and requested that the money be removed from his account. He claimed the branch manager (names withheld), directed him to write a statement of his complaint, which he did.

The petitioner lamented that months after having lodged his complaint, the bank still did not remove the money from his account. The victim claimed that on October 24, he went to the bank to transact normal business, but discovered that he could not access his account, noting that he was then directed to see the bank manager.

The petitioner noted that while he was waiting, the bank manager invited police to arrest him, saying “from there I was taken to Ekpan Police Station at Uvie Local Government Area, where I was detained for three days.”

His lawyer argued that the petitioner’s fundamental human rights were breached.

    My dear brothers @Kayode and @Olovo, You may just be surprised that was not what happened. The story looks too clean and straight to have warranted incarceration. Remember this guy is writing under the guidance of a lawyer. When you hear the other side of the story you will be shocked. My suspicion is that he was into fraudulent activities with some people and that was not the first payment into his account. When he knew his partners have been caught or suspected that he was been investigated, he quickly reported it to look clean and innocent but then remember that the bank has full records of his account transactions. Ordinarily, if you get a deposit or transfer that you do not expect the much you can do is report to the bank especially when its just 100k. But going as far as reporting it to the Police smells foul play on the boy’s part. He knows more that what he and his Lawyer want us to believe. God bless us
