UBA staff faces N3.4m fraud charge

21 January 2013, 16:01

Lagos - An employee of United Bank for Africa (UBA), Olumide Fabunmi, on Monday appeared before an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, for allegedly withdrawing N3.4 million from a customer’s account.

Fabunmi, 24, who lives at 55, Okpe Road, Sapele, Delta, is standing trial on a two-count charge of forgery and stealing.

The prosecutor, Insp. Raji Akeem, told the court that the accused committed the offences sometime in April 2012.

He said the accused, who was in charge of the account of the complainant, Mr Eyeregba Emmanuel, Managing Director of See-D Good Business Enterprise, Sapele, allegedly forged his signature and withdrew N3.4 million from his account.

Akeem said the accused also presented a forged document with signatures of various customers, including Emmanuel requesting overdrafts from the bank.

``The accused was caught when Emmanuel wrote to the bank through his lawyer that he did not withdraw the money from the bank.

``After a thorough investigation, it was discovered that Fabunmi, who was the customer’s account officer, forged his signature to withdraw the money,’’ he said.

Akeem, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The magistrate, Mrs O.A. Ogunbowale, granted the accused bail in the sum of N250,000 with two sureties in like sum and adjourned the case to Feb. 12 for mention.
