- There was a mild drama in a bank as an unhappy customer showed up to register his displeasure in a surprising manner
- The young man, a comedian and content creator, lamented that he didn't get any text from his bank on his birthday
- According to him, he got birthday texts from other banks he patronises and directed his bank to close his account
A Nigerian man stormed his bank and directed that they close his account for not sending him a text on his birthday which was the previous day.
Flaring up as he poured out his heart before the customers, the man slammed the bank, stating that other banks he has accounts with sent him texts.
The Imo comedian and content creator knocked the bank for only knowing how to debit and charge VATs on accounts.
In the video shared by @gossipmilltv on Instagram, a security personnel approached the man to restore order in the banking facility but this yielded no result.

He told the bank officials to choose between sending him a text on the spot or closing his account.
While he painfully kept demanding that they close his account, customers burst into a birthday song for him.
The song did the trick as the young man smiled and got calmer. He subsequently introduced himself, appreciated the customers and left.
On what inspired the scene he created at the bank, the comedian whose real name is Egu Augustine told Legit.ng that it was well within his right to get a well-wish on his birthday and this spurred him to action.
"Well, they actually didn’t send me a birthday text which is my right as a customer and it led me to do that."
"I actually visited 4 different banks but compiled only 2 in a video that went viral.
"And again, I was aware that the video would go viral cos Nigerians need such content to stay happy and also to talk about…"

Unhappy customer threatens to kill himself in a bank with a rope
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a man had stormed a bank with rope and threatened to kill himself over unsolicited deductions to his account.
Roots TV Nigeria which shared a video from the incident on Instagram reported that the man had earlier reported an unfamiliar transaction of N450,000 on his account to the bank.
The complainant was directed by the bank to get a court order to prove he had no business with the recipient of the money. He reportedly got the court order only to be informed by bank officials that the transaction had been facilitated in favor of the supposed hacker.
In the clip, bank officials and some customers engaged in a struggle to wrest the rope from the distressed man.
