An unidentified bank customer has slumped and died after standing in a queue for long hours at a bank in Agbor, Delta State .

He died after waiting for hours to collect his Automated Teller Machine card at the bank in Ika South Local Government Area, Delta State.The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident.

“He was not trying to withdraw cash; he came to collect his ATM card,” the police spokesperson said.It has been reported that banking halls across various commercial banks in Lagos, Osun, Ekiti, and other parts of the country witnessed minimal activity as frustrated customers resorted to alternative means of cash withdrawal following the scarcity of naira notes in the banks.

While most banking halls were empty due to paucity of funds in bank vaults, large crowds had formed outside some of the few banks that were rumoured to be preparing to load their Automated Teller Machines.
