A 42-year-old carpenter, Mensah Kwami Azaglo, has settled at the premises of the Unity Rural Bank Limited at Ho in the Volta region in a bid to demand his money from the bank.
Information available suggests that for some time now, the bank has been unable to pay him his deposits.
Per a report by the Ghana News Agency, Azaglo explained that the bank has been owing him GH¢46, 249.90 since 2013 and all efforts to get his money has proven futile.
He took the matter to court in May 2019 after he was constantly informed that there was no money to give him.
The court thereafter granted the bank’s application of motion on notice to stay in execution of the debt by a monthly installment.
Per the arrangement, the bank was expected to pay him GHc4000 every month from December 2019 till it cleared the debt.
The bank however informed the court that it would pay him GHc5000 from November 2019 as a show of good faith but that is yet to be fulfilled.
Azaglo revealed that the bank’s inability to pay him his money has created serious financial challenges for him and he has been ejected by his landlord.
He is also unable to either pay his workers or fees for his children and this is taking a toll on the education of his children.
The carpenter added that he would have been in police custody by now but for a copy of the judgement received from the court.
He is therefore determined to stay at the premises of the bank till his money is paid to him.
