Four members of staff of a Microfinance Bank situated at Abule Ijoko Lemode area of Ifo local government have been arrested by operatives of Ogun State Police Command over the death of a 50 year old Vivian Omo, a wife to one of their debtors.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed the arrest of the suspects in a statement in Abeokuta.
Mr Oyeyemi explained that the bank staff had visited the home of the deceased to ask for the payment of loan taken from the bank by the deceased’s husband but they were told that the man was not at home.
He said the deceased was pushed by one of the staff when she was trying to prevent them from packing all the electronics in the house to their office.
The PPRO noted that the corpse had been deposited at Ifo General Hospital morgue for autopsy.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Mr Olanrewaju Oladimeji, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to Homicide section of the state Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation.
Mr Oladimeji also warned loan agencies to stop taking laws into their hands in the process of recovering loan from their debtors, noting that anyone caught in such act would be arrested and prosecuted.
