A group of scammers was apprehended by the Lagos State Police Command after they followed their victim to the bank.
SP Benjamin Hundeyin, Public Relations Officer, stated that the incident occurred last Friday about 3:50pm.
According to the PRO, a cashier spotted a 64-year-old customer fidgeting, receiving several calls, and rushing to withdraw N600,000.
The worker then inquired as to the nature of the problem, but the woman informed her that speaking would result in her death.
A team of officers from the Ogudu Division responded to a distress call and discovered three men waiting outside.
Uche Awaize, 45, and Osadebe Aigbe, 35, were arrested while the third suspect bolted.
Hundeyin said the fraudsters initially collected N90,000 from the woman. The police are searching for the other gang member.
