A worker with a bank in Lagos State, identified as Bunmi, has been declared wanted for allegedly defrauding some customers of the bank.
Bunmi hacked into customers’ bank accounts and diverted over N3m into some private accounts. Our correspondent gathered that the fraud was uncovered after owners of the accounts complained about their disappearing funds, which made the bank to institute a probe.
The bank management reportedly blocked the accounts into which the funds were transferred. Owners of the blocked accounts, who were reportedly unaware that their accounts were being used for fraud, were said to have reported at their various branches and complained of the development. The bank management was said to have handed them over to the police.
She noted that the two men tricked the account owners into releasing the numbers, adding that the duo shared the proceeds of the fraud with the prime suspect, who was at large. Badmos said N3m had so far been traced to the suspects. The police spokesperson, Badmos, said the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone 2, Ibrahim Adamu, had ordered that the suspects be arraigned at the end of the investigation.
