16 February 2015, 14:01

Lagos  - The Zone 2 Police Command in Lagos on Sunday declared 10 suspected bankers wanted for alleged N125.1 million scam.

The names and photographs of the suspects were pasted on the command’s notice board.

The command’s spokesman, Gbenga Adeoye, who confirmed this in Lagos, said it was normal for the police to declare wanted anybody suspected of crime.

It is normal for the police to declare wanted anybody who refuses to make himself available after committing crimes such as fraud, jump bail or murder, he said.

“When we declare anybody wanted, the photograph, names and contact address of the suspected fellow will be pasted in the police formation for easy identification of his or her arrest,” Adeoye said.

According to him, the suspects now at large were being investigated for alleged forgery and obtaining money by false pretence.

“A warrant of arrest has been duly obtained from a Magistrates’ Court in Lagos state against the suspected fraudsters,” he said.

It was gathered that the suspects conspired with others to obtain financial facilities of N15 055,541; N10 894 478 and N24 597 628.

Other amounts were N9 983 195, N11 114 992, N12 231 958, N8 663 833, N10 827 561, N5 657 937, and N15 054 383, respectively, from a bank.

The suspected bankers are between the ages of 34 and 48.
