EFCC Arrests Twelve Bankers For Alleged Fraud In Enugu

The Enugu Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in a statement on Saturday, 15th October 2022 announced its arrest of twelve (12) bankers in Enugu.

According to the statement by its spokesperson, Wilson Uwujarem, EFCC said the suspects were arrested on Friday, 14th October, by its operatives from the Enugu Zonal Command of the commission.

EFCC said in a statement that the suspects are being accused of “insider fraud,” and would be charged in court as soon as investigations are concluded.

 

 

The suspects are; Odeniyi Anthony, Deki Kingsley Onyekachi, Oguchukwu Ene, Elendu Chizaram, Victoria Ezedie, and Chidi-Ukah Obinna.

As well as; Anyakora Uchenna, Onah Kingsley, Akwe Elizabeth and Chinenye Grace Acibe, Etoh Lawrence Uzochukwu, and Udeze Harrison.

 “The stolen funds were transferred from the dormant accounts to various beneficiaries, with the principal beneficiary already identified by the EFCC,” the agency said.

Although the EFCC is yet to disclose whether or not the arrested suspects were staffers of the bank, the identity of the bank where the alleged fraud occurred also remains unknown.

“The suspects will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded,” the EFCC added.

For a while now, a good number of Nigerians have been victims of missing funds, especially those who did not use their accounts for a long period of time.
