Oladipupo told FIJ the money was deducted in a tranches of N70,000 and N6,000 on January 1.

“On January 6, I was at the Point of Sales (PoS) to withdraw N12, 000 but was told my balance was insufficient,” Oladipupo told FIJ.

“I told them I had money in there but they insisted otherwise and asked me to visit my bank for my statement of account.”

The Lagos-based mechanic said when he got to the bank, his statement of account revealed that his money was transferred into an Opay account.

“I found out that my money was moved through a PoS transfer into an Opay account,” he said.

“I also discovered that N6,000 was deducted on December 31 and N70,000 on January 1.

“I just want my money back from Fidelity Bank.”
