Bank Error Bonanza: Students Withdraw Millions After Glitch!

In a twist that could only happen in the realm of comedic finance, a massive glitch at the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE) turned ordinary students into accidental millionaires overnight. Reports flooded in of students flocking to ATMs, eyes wide with disbelief as they withdrew sums that would make even the most seasoned banker do a double-take.

The chaos began when whispers of the glitch spread like wildfire through messaging apps, sparking a frenzy of activity reminiscent of a Black Friday sale. As dawn broke, queues snaked around campus ATMs, resembling more of a pop-up concert than a financial institution.

One incredulous student at Jimma University Institute of Technology remarked, “I thought it was a prank, you know, like one of those Nigerian prince emails. But lo and behold, I’m now richer than Jeff Bezos… well, for a moment at least.”

Another student, speaking on condition of anonymity, recounted the surreal experience of witnessing friends gleefully emptying their accounts in the wee hours of the morning. “It was like a scene from a heist movie, except instead of slick criminals, it was just a bunch of sleep-deprived students in pajamas.”

As news of the windfall spread, authorities scrambled to contain the situation. Police vehicles descended upon campuses like knights charging into battle, though their attempts to stem the tide of newfound wealth proved futile. Despite their efforts, the allure of easy money proved too tempting for many.

In a valiant attempt to right the ship, bank employees were dispatched to collect voluntarily returned funds. Picture a modern-day Robin Hood scenario, albeit with significantly less finesse and more paperwork.

Meanwhile, the bank itself went into damage control mode, assuring customers that their cyber defenses had not been breached. In a statement that likely left more questions than answers, bank president Abe Sano assured the public that the glitch was merely a hiccup in their ongoing quest for banking perfection.

While the dust settles and the ATMs count their losses, one thing is certain: this glitch will go down in history as a cautionary tale of the perils of mixing finance with folly.
