The United Bank for Africa (UBA) has made a refund of N81,800 to Maryam Omotayo, a Lagos-based trader who experienced a failed PoS transaction.
Omotayo confirmed to FIJ on Tuesday evening that she had received a refund from the bank.
“My money was reversed on Monday evening,” Omotayo said.
“Thank you, FIJ. I am grateful.”

FIJ had reported how Omotayo’s N81,800 was stuck between UBA and Baxi PoS after a January 28 transaction on Saturday.
“On January 28, I went to use my United Bank for Africa (UBA) debit card on a Baxi PoS,” she had said.
“The status of the transaction read ‘declined’, but the sum left my account.
“I have visited the Badagry branch of UBA to fill a dispense error form several times, but nothing has been done about it,” she said.
