A man in Edo state, identified as David, reportedly abandoned his wife and three children at a Point of Sale (POS) shop, after collecting N43,000 from the operator.
The funny but ugly incident happened on Saturday at Oluku, near Benin City, the Edo state.
According to reports, the man went to the POS shop with his wife and three children, gave his ATM card to the female attendant and requested to withdraw the sum of N43,000.
A witness related that following several attempts to effect the withdrawal failed, the man asked the POS attendant to give him the money, while his family and the attendant continue try the withdrawal.
“The man pleaded with the POS attendant to give him the money first, as he had to sort out an urgent matter.
“He left his wife and three children behind as an assurance that he would return soon.
“After giving him the money, the attendant tried to withdraw the money from his account several times, but the transaction failed,” the source added.
After waiting endlessly, the POS attendant reported the matter at the Ekiadolor Police Division, where the woman and her three children are currently being detained.
