Skye Bank In Another Fraud Mess … Details Of How Staff Betrayed Customer

Misappropriation by bankers these days has rendered banks an unsafe haven for those who desire to keep money out of home.

Sources have affirmed the involvement of Skye Bank’s staffers in another fraud mess to the tune of N5, 550,000 (five million, five hundred and fifty thousand naira) from a customer’s account within the bank.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arrested five persons at the Kehinde Durosinmi-Etti led bank over the allegation of the fraudulent transfer.

The suspects, Ademola Okunlola, 36; Tajudeen Oluwanisola, 41; Kolawole Adams, 52; Temitope Pedro, 27; Bayo Olowoyo, 39 and Otunba Biodun Adebanjo, 56, were picked up in different locations in Lagos by operatives of the anti- graft agency for allegedly effecting the fraudulent transfer of N5, 550,000.00 from the account of one Ajani Kareem Musibau domiciled in Skye Bank Plc.

The fraudulent transfers took place on March 3, 2014. One of the suspected fraudsters, Ademola Okunlola, a staff of Skye Bank, Ikeja Branch, Lagos, set the stage for the scam when he covertly used his camera phone to capture the photograph and signature specimen of Musibau.  He accessed his account and sent the details to another staff of the bank: Bayo Olowoyo at the Toyin Street, Ikeja branch.

The duo reportedly sent Musibau’s photograph and signature specimen to a member of their syndicate who effected the money transfer into two accounts operated in another bank within Nigeria: N4.1Million( Four Million, One Hundred Thousand Naira) was moved into Adebajo Biodun Olusola’s account, Ogun State while N1,450,000.00( One Million, Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira only) was moved into another account operated by Temitope Pedro.

Reliable sources who claim anonymity told us that if most of the account officers in Skye Bank were drilled thoroughly, many shady deals with customer’s accounts entrusted in their care would be discovered.

They will be arraigned in court as soon as investigation is concluded.

As at press time, all efforts to reach the bank’s corporate communications was futile.Misappropriation by bankers these days has rendered banks an unsafe haven for those who desire to keep money out of home.
