LAPO is known for lending money to traders and other small-scale business owners with specific instructions for repayment plans.

She said, “I was told that she obtained the loan running into N70,000.”

A former member of the LAPO group, who identified herself simply as Mrs Adeogun said an  ‘unprecedented embarrassment’ will befall anyone who refuses to pay back the borrowed money from the bank at the set date.

“If you refuse to pay them back at the set date, you will be treated like trash, you will be embarrassed in a big way, in a manner that your children will forever be ashamed of. I know what I am saying, I used to be a member.
