12 Bankers Arrested In Enugu Over Alleged Fraud
Twelve bank staff working with an undisclosed old-generation financial institution in Enugu State have been arrested over the alleged stealing of customers’ funds.
Naija News reports that the suspects were arrested by the operatives of the Enugu Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The anti-graft agency revealed the names of the suspects as: Odeniyi Anthony, Deki Kingsley Onyekachi, Oguchukwu Ene, Elendu Chizaram, Victoria Ezedie and Chidi-Ukah Obinna.
Others involved in the fraudulent acts include; Anyakora Uchenna, Onah Kingsley, Akwe Elizabeth and Chinenye Grace Acibe, Etoh Lawrence Uzochukwu and Udeze Harrison.
The anti-graft agency tagged the crime as an ‘insider fraud’. The suspects are said to have stolen different amounts of money from some dormant accounts in a branch of an old-generation bank in Enugu.
The funds according to the EFCC, were transferred from various beneficiaries, with the principal beneficiary already identified.
The commission has, however, assured that all the suspects will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
In another development, the Lagos command of the anti-graft agency on October 17, 2022, arraigned one Usman Tolani Abass before Justice Mojisola Dada of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos on a five-count charge bordering on stealing to the tune of N10,000,000 (Ten Million Naira).
The EFCC in a publication on its official Twitter page said the offence is contrary to Section 285(9) (b) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011.
It’s Better To Engage In Yahoo Yahoo Than Gambling – Seun Kuti Drops Controversial Statement
Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti said on Monday that he would rather be an internet fraudster also known as ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ instead of a gambler.
Kuti insisted that gambling is a scheme created by foreigners to sell false hope to people and milk them of their resources.
He begged African youths to stop gambling and engage in ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ instead.
Speaking further, Kuti insisted that gambling is a lost cause from the get-go when compared to Yahoo Yahoo.
Making case for his preference still, Seun noted ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ can be controlled unlike gambling where the people are at the mercy of a scheme.
