“We Knew Those Behind The Owo Church Attack Long Ago But We Delayed The Announcement” -Gov Akeredolu
Recently, a press statement about the arrest of some suspects behind the Owo Church attack was released by Richard Olatunde; the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State.
In the press statement, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu reacted to the announcement made by the Chief of Defense Staff (General Irabor Lucky) about the owo church attackers saying, “we knew those behind the Owo church attack for a while (long ago) but we delayed the announcement.”
The Governor however warned the Ebira people living in the state against venturing into kidnapping saying, “we appeal to (Ebira) youths not to emulate the bad act of kidnapping because some of them living with us are now into kidnapping.”
He continued, “the Ebira people I know have lived together with the people of Ondo peacefully for several decades and they have always been supportive and hardworking.”
Concerning the efforts taken so far about securing lives and properties in the state, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu disclosed that 20 hunters and local vigilantes will be trained by the Amotekun corps in each of the eighteen local government areas in the state. This is different from the recent recruitment and training of new Amotekun personnels.
Finally, the governor said he will have a meeting with leaders of Ebira people in the state to ensure such incident do not resurface.
Zenith Bank Refunds N3.23m To Angry Customer Chiamaka Agim
A leading Nigerian commercial bank, Zenith Bank has returned N3.23 million to Chiamaka Agim, a Lagos State resident whose N4.039 million was erroneously deducted on January 9.
According to reports, Zenith Bank had previously informed Agim that she would only receive N800,500 of the N4,039,900 that had been debited.
But on Monday, January 16, in the evening, the bank sent back N3,239,400.
Recently, the Zenith Bank client shared a post about the refund on her Twitter page.
Agim reported that on that Monday, the bank contacted her to provide an update on the refunded money.
“After the event, they had to put my account on pause, so I didn’t get any alerts,” the user said. I was told to visit the bank the next day,” she recalled.
“They had credited my account with N3,239,400 around 7.30 pm on Monday,” the customer said. “My account statement was printed when I got to the bank.”
She claimed to have discovered that Access, one of the two banks to which the funds were transferred, still held the remaining N800,500.
Zenith Bank stated that Access Bank is now withholding the funds and that it is not their fault at this time. They said Access Bank stated that the funds would not be released without a court order.
