A drama occurred at one of the first generation banks in Akure, Ondo State capital, when a lady, simply identified as Sade, bathed a cashier (names withheld) with faeces inside the banking hall for allegedly snatching her husband.
Customers and fellow bankers took to their heels as the assailant rained abuses after pouring the smelly substance on the lady banker.
The ugly incident, which occurred on Friday, was quickly brought under control by security operatives attached to the bank.
Sade, who pretended to be one of the customers, was said to have arrived the bank with a polythene bag and approached the cashier only to pour its contents on her.
The stench took over the banking hall just as all the customers ran to the door to escape the odour.
Sunday Vanguard gathered that the cashier was equally assaulted by the lady before she was bundled out by the bank guards.
The management of the bank, after the ugly incident, arranged for the cashier to bath and change her clothes within the bank premises.
One of the bankers told Sunday Vanguard: “All of us, including my colleague who was assaulted, were busy attending to customers when the young lady came in and started raining abusive words on the victim, in an embarrassing way. She called her unprintable names and accused her of snatching her husband.
“We were shocked and we tried to shout her down only for her to open a polythene bag she carried, thinking that she wanted to make some deposit but what she brought out shocked everybody.
“She removed the bag containing the terribly smelly faeces which she instantly poured on her victim”.
The police public relations officer at the Ondo State Police Command, Mr. Aremu Adeniran, said the suspect had been arrested and detained by the police.
Adeniran, said, “The incident happened around noon on Friday and the suspect, who is already with us, came to Akure from Owo with a can containing smelly faeces which she poured on the banker.
“She will be charged to court after necessary investigations had been concluded on the case”.
