- He said he was not going to allow anyone enter or exit the premises of the bank if his money was not paid to him
- The angry customer said many efforts to withdraw money from the bank had proven futile, and so he resorted to blocking of the entrance
An angry customer of uniCredit Ghana Limited, staged a drama at the bank’s head office in Accra when he blocked the entrance with his car.
The man, whose name was given as Kofi Agyei, said blocking the entrance of the bank was part of his personal effort to retrieve his GHC30,000 savings from the bank on Tuesday, November 20, 2018.

According to the angry customer, several attempts to withdraw money from Unibank have not been successful.
He said he had a contract which he needed to execute with his GHC30,000 savings, but Unicredit had not allowed him to make the withdrawal.
Kofi Agyei revealed that the bank offered to give him GHC5,000 with the promise of “organising the remaining GHC25,000 for him but he rejected it.
He is quoted to have said: “I’ve been saving with uniCredit for some time now, but since September, I’ve been trying to get money for my contract but when I come, they say: ‘Come tomorrow, we’ll organise it for you, come today we’ll organise it for you’. I was here last week and they assured me they will pay my money but they didn’t. So, I’m still here and I even blocked the entrance with my car, I’ll not allow any car to enter.”
Kofi Agyei was said to be at the bank’s premises with many other aggrieved customers who wanted to withdraw their deposits.
Unicredit is the savings and loans subsidiary of the now-defunct uniBank.
Since the collapse of Unibank which is now part of the Consolidated Bank Ghana, Unicredit has struggled to be on its feet.
YEN.com.gh recently reported the case of another customer who packed his personal belongings including his mattress and bag to go sleep at the banking hall of the Apenkwa branch of the bank in Achimota.
The man vowed never the leave the banking hall until his money with them is paid in full.
