  2. That Our Client is a certified POS Agent with Access Bank and First bank with a Certificate to that effect.

 

  1. That Our Client received a phone call from phone number 08037797603, which when put on Truecaller showed the name NURA BELLO intimating him that he was an EFCC official from Kaduna State who was investigating a case of fraud, and who asked him if he could go to the Benin Zonal Office of the EFCC for an interview for which our client answered in the affirmative and indicated that he should let him know when he will go, for which there was no there communication thereafter.
  2. That surprisingly, without any statement being obtained from our client by your Commission or any invitation whatsoever to him, your Commission restricted 6 (Six) of Our Client’s accounts (some of which accounts are not connected in any way whatsoever to the POS business) without any Court Order, as required by Law, thereby truncating our client’s business which he uses to take care of himself and his poor family and causing him emotional and psychological trauma and loss of business.

 

  1. That Our Client’s accounts illegally restricted by your Commission are, Account Numbers;
  2. 0040625708 – Unity Bank (Individual Account),

  7. 1390273232 – Access Bank (Agency Account)

 

  1. That our client did not do anything illegal whatsoever other than to do his legitimate business of dispensing cash to POS users who are a mixed crowd of members of the public and it is a patent illegality for your Commission, to restrict or freeze our client’s account in connivance with some commercial banks, without any Court Order and for which you have all incurred liabilities together with the conniving commercial banks indicated above, upon which we now demand on behalf of our client from your Commission the sum of N50,000,000.00K (Fifty Million Naira) only, for the circle of impurity and illegality perpetuated by your Commission against our client who is just a young man trying to make ends meet.

In the light of this, we demand an immediate re-opening of the bank accounts of our client as it was illegally restricted by your Commission, and the payment of the sum of N50,000,000.00K (Fifty Million Naira) only to our client without any delay. Failure of which we shall proceed against your Commission and the said commercial banks without any delay to claim aggravated damages against you all.

 

Let wise counsel prevail.
