7 Access Bank Employees Have Died Of Hypertension Trying To Reach Targets

We should see in every LovePeddler an accusing finger pointing firmly at society as a whole. Every love-vendor, every partner in prostitution, turns the knife in this festering and gaping wound that disfigures the world. In desperate bid to increase its capital base, Access Bank, like love-vendor, has resorted to numerous unethical practices. In desperate bid to remain in business, set unrealistic targets for their female staff insisting that they either live up to expectations or lose their jobs.

A huge number of female bankers have either lost their jobs due to non-compliance or kept the jobs by embracing what has now been tagged ‘corporate prostitution.’ While some of them have died of heart-attack. Access Bank, we hear, has even gone a step further by buying official cars for some of the ladies who go about in skimpy revealing dresses to seduce high net-worth ‘customers’ to make deposits. This ‘trade’ has been so mastered by some ladies that they don’t have to fix a date or a venue for the exploitation, as they have ‘ready-made package’ for randy depositors who wish to explore the spontaneity aspect of the business.

Aig Imoukhuede led bank has literally turned the female bankers to LovePeddlers and they make no pretence about it. Those who could not stand the heat are always advised to get of the system and look for jobs elsewhere.

Sadly, however, one of the female marketers, Solabomi Olugbemi of Retail Business Unit at Simbiat Abiola branch of Access Bank, died early this morning. She had being on admission for over two weeks. Her Friends and co-workers who visited her said she confided in them that she had being under a lot of stress because of Deposit Mobilization mandate (OJC) Operation. Just because the Divisional Director gave them an ear-pulling warning early this year to raise cheap funds for the bank on N1 trillion in 6months. Solabomi lost her life because of bad accounts she inherited from a product called Auto-online (Car Loan) coupled with the incident of one of her customers withdrawing 200million naira from his account which threw her balance sheet to negative.

We also gathered from an insider in the bank that Solabomi collapsed on the last day of OJC target deadline because she was unable to maintain a huge demand deposit balance. She was immediately rushed to Jolade hospital in Gbagada, Lagos but she was later taken to Military hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos where she was diagnosed with high blood pressure. Young and jovial Solabomi (29 years old) who was married with 3 little children and a lovely husband died early this morning. Sources also confirmed that over 60% of access Bank staff are highly hypertensive and run the risk of heart attacks in their young age.


  1. No wonder their ATM machines have debited my account close to N50,000 between April & June even when no cash was dipensed to me. All my complaints & efforts to get these debit transactions reversed fell on deaf ears. My GOD will surely haunt ACCESS BANK for robbing me of my hard-earned money. With all the underground & unehical method the bank is carrying out it‘s activities to ensure it remains afloat, it is just a matter of time before it goes bankrupt. Already, some of us are making plans to close our accounts with the bank. May the souls of all it‘s staff that lost their lives in their efforts to attain the marks set for them by the bank in order to retain their jobs rest in peace. Amen.

  2. Its a lie o, even at that it is also applicable in other banks. So don’t apply destructive criticism here and look for a nice job to do

  3. I’m an ex-staff of Access Bank. The bank does not set different targets for female staff. We’re treated the same way as the men. Contrary to what was noted above, Access Bank frowns at staff wearing skimpy cloths. I quite agree that the targets are usually outrageous and the pressure is quite high, but the bank doesn’t send people out for prostitution. Staff have different ways of meeting their targets. Whoever decides to go into prostitution is on her own. Don’t forget that some ladies are just loose
    Irrespective of what they do for a living, they will always be like that. Other banks also set targets for their staff.

  4. @Bio, you are absolutely correct. In Access Bank, ladies and gents are treated equally. Access Bank frowns at indecent dressing/clothing. You will be sent home if you wear seductive dresses to work. I worked there for about 5 years and I can say itz a nice place to work. People lie a lot about this bank for many reasons – majorly because of the take over of intercontinental bank. Access bank is an equal opportunity employer – is the only place where merit counts in Nigeria,that I know.

  5. Access bank as i learnt is the worst place to work. I am a banker who have help access bank staff find her way to my bank, so if i talk you i know what am saying. Agreed there is pay but pay is not everything that bring about job statisfaction.
