A young lady has been caught after she attempted to escape by jumping out of one the windows on the side of a banking hall in Kumasi.

In a video which has since been trending on social media platforms, the lady who took to her heels after escaping through the window was rounded up by the security personnel with the assistance of two police officers at the premises.

According to reports the lady was arrested after attempting to rob the Ashanti regional Adum branch of Ecobank.

A recent report from Angel Media Group journalist, Saddick Adams, however, suggested that the lady is a customer who tried to escape after the bank uncovered her several fraudulent deals using her account.

He disclosed that officials of Ecobank called him to give the correct sequence of information of the incident which occurred in August.

“The lady in question is a customer of who has been doing business for a while. The bank recently noticed series of unusual transfers on the lady’s account. (Which they'd not readily disclose). They finally suspected some dodgy deals. She came to make withdrawal and the bank authorities invited her for some interrogation. The banking hall is downstairs so they accosted her to the upper room, gave her a seat whiles the bank and security staff were locked in a short meeting. The lady sensing that her "cover had been blown" tried to escape through the window. She was arrested and taken to the police station. Matter is in court”. His post read
