Man Uses Wife, Children As ‘Collateral’ To Collect N43,000 At POS Shop ~Omonaijablog


A Middle-aged man has abandoned his wife and three children in a Point of Sales shop at Oluku near Benin City, the Edo State capital.

Reports had it that the man went to the POS shop with his wife and three children, gave his Automated Teller Machine (ATM) Card to the female POS attendant and requested for the sum of Forty-Three Thousand Naira.

Unfortunately, the transaction did not go through; the man then pleaded with the POS attendant to give him the Forty-Three thousand naira (N43,000) to give to a customer waiting for him at home while his wife, Mrs. Faith David and the three children should wait behind until the ATM connection go through as an assurance that he would return swiftly.


The transaction happened at 3 p.m. on January 9, 2020 and as at 11:02 p.m. same day, the man was yet to return.

After waiting endlessly, the POS attendant then reported the matter to the men of the Ekiadolor Police Division of the Edo State Police Command who have now taken the woman and her three children into safe custody.

The POS Operator described the man’s action as “stealing by trick.”



She, however, blamed the situation on the current economic problem in the country.

Mrs. Faith who was in tears while speaking to journalists on Sunday at the police station appealed to kindhearted Nigerians to come to her aid by ensuring she leaves the police station with her kids.

She wondered why her husband decided to use her and the children as collateral to take money from the POS shop.
