Finbank Plc and one of its senior Manager, Rosemary Usifor alleged to have defrauded a retired Deputy Inspector General of Police, Archibong Nkanga, may soon be arraigned before a federal high court in Lagos, southwest Nigeria.
According to a police source at the Special Fraud Unit Milverton, Ikoyi, Lagos, Rosemary Usifor who was the branch manager and also the accounting officer in charge of the Deputy Inspector General’s account, sometime in 2011 was alleged to have fraudulently forged a letter and application and withdrew N30 million from the fixed deposit account of DIG Archibong Nkenga domiciled at Awolowo Road branch of Finbank Plc.
The retired police officer was shocked when he applied to withdraw N4 million from his account only to be told that he has no sufficient money in his account to meet his request. He then raised alarm and petitioned the police.
During the investigation, it was discovered that the accused banker fraudulently withdrew the money for her Ankara cloth business.
Meanwhile, police from the legal department of Special Fraud Unit have filed a one-count criminal charge of fraudulent withdrawal of N30 million against the accused banker and Finbank Plc.
