Nigerian Banker Dies In Police Custody After Gruesome Torture

banker killed

Whether this former Ecobank worker in the picture actually got involved in bank fraud or not, he does not “deserve” to die!!! Our Nigerian politicians steal billions every minute of the day, get involved in money laundering and go unpunished. Yet Babatunde Oke, a man with an aged mother, 2kids which one of them is just 5 months old and a nursing wife was subjected to torture which eventually took his life. This is injustice!!! The family deserves justice!!! 

The fear of Nigerian Police is the beginning of wisdom…………………………………………………………………….

I still keep screaming till tomorrow that bigger thieves (politicians) steal and get away with it, while poor thieves are killed instantly. When I hear of jungle justices in Nigeria, whereby horrible wicked people use sticks and machetes to kill human beings for stealing food or other material things, it breaks my heart. I don’t know when Nigerian Government will wake up and stop jungle justice.

    Tunde
    was accused of a missing 1.2million from eco bank, ladipo where he
    worked sometime late last year. He was asked to refund the money amount.
    According
    to Tunde den someone posted d money with his system. However Tunde
    made effort to repay d money, his account was put on hold and that of
    his wife who works with the bank was also put on hold. (they could no
    longer make withdrawals from their acct). Tunde was able to to repay
    600k before d events that led to his arrest.
    On
    Sundayd 16th of feb, Tunde had a fire accident in his residence, his
    generator exploded, leaving burns in his hands and legs. Tunde went with
    d burns to the office on Monday to show his branch manager and explain d
    fact that he wont be able to stay at work for the day.
    On
    Tuesday18th feb Tunde was on his way to clinic and some persons
    ecobank called his wife to inform her that they were coming to arrest
    her at her branch since d husband has absconded. She quickly placed a
    call to her husband to inform him and her husband reported immediately
    to work abandoning his treatment due to the threat.
    Tunde
    was arrested at work on Tuesday and taken to the divisional
    headquarters at Ikoyi where he was locked up for 3 days. All efforts to
    get his bail went futile as the police insisted that based on d
    instruction of the bank, they must get the outstanding.

    His
    lawyer was asked to bring 1 million and he told dem bail was free and
    he cant raise such. In the course of argument the police escalated d
    debt to 2.4 million and the lawyer reminded them he only had an
    outstanding of 600k.

    Tunde
    was tortured as usual by the police in the cell and on Thursday
    morning his mother in-law and brother visited the station, but was again
    urged by d police to quickly go and get money. They went to use the ATM
    and on their way back, they saw an ambulance and wen they peeped into
    it, they saw Tunde’s cloths drenched in blood, his mouth foaming and it
    was also discovered later that a coke bottle cover was placed in his
    pocket. The police started alleging poison that he took a poisonous
    coke.

    Now
    am wondering, poison from where? This is the story so far. We are
    waiting for autopsy results but the media must be at alert… the
    process must b corruption free. Eco bank and the NPF will be doing all
    they can to bribe as many as possible….anyone who takes bribe on this
    issue will die a miserable death in Jesus name!
