Woman allegedly incurs N757,000 debt at Lagos bar
A bar operator on Lekki Beach Road, Ademola Ogunbona, says he has lost his livelihood to the alleged debt of N757,750 incurred by one Mrs. Shaw, aka Mama G, Punchng is reporting.
Mama G had gone to the bar around 6am on August 15, 2016, to have fun, which lasted till about 1am the following day. It was said that Mama G instructed the barman to serve customers that came to the bar throughout her stay, and promised to pick up the bill for the drinks they consumed.
One of the major beneficiaries of Mama G’s gesture was a man who came to the bar with his 15 friends at about 6.30pm to celebrate his birthday. She allegedly ordered many rounds of drinks for the man and his friends and told Ogunbona to add their bill to hers.
However, at about 1am, when she had reportedly become inebriated, some persons were said to have stormed the bar and took her away in a Honda car to Rotary Garden Estate, Ilasan, Ajah, where she lives with her husband.
Ogunbona said he, 2 of his workers and the chief security officer of the shops in the area followed the car, but the security guards at the estate gate did not allow them in.
He said, “Mama G came to my bar and ordered drinks. She told me to serve everybody that came to the bar and promised to pay. In the afternoon, I told her that her bill was over N200,000.
She slapped my face and asked me whether she looked like a debtor. I went to report the case to the police and on January 11, her husband transferred N200,000 into my bank account. I called him and asked for the remaining money, he said I should contact his wife’s lawyer.
When I called the lawyer, he said I should manage the money like that. The case was transferred to the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, in February 2017, and the Investigating Police Officer in charge, has been telling me to be patient; but I have children and a wife to cater to.”
