A video has shown the moment a Ghanaian man was seen on Wednesday storming a bank in Accra with his mattress, pillow, and other personal effects to take up residence in the banking hall, after his inability to withdraw money from his account.
In the video shared by Adomonline, the visibly angry man was seen arriving in a taxi, before removing his personal effects and taking them into the banking hall.
He was seen spreading his mattress on the floor in the banking hall, adding his pillow and lying down on it. After a while, he stood up and placed his shoes on the counter.

He reportedly took the action, after multiple attempts by him to withdraw his money were met with the response, “the service is down”.
Staff and other customers at the banking hall were surprised by the man’s action.
Panic withdrawals have become rampant in Ghanaian banks following the collapse of several banks in the country but the Bank of Ghana has given the assurance that depositors’ funds are safe.
