BENIN CITY: A staff of First Bank of Nigeria (FBN), Mr. Philip Orumade has been arrested by the Benin Zonal Office of Nigeria’s anti-graft agency – Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly stealing the sum of 18.9 million naira from the Bank.

According to a statement posted on its Twitter hand, the EFCC said: “Orumade, who was said to be in charge of ATM gallery keys at Aduwawa branch of the Bank, on November 3, 2019, allegedly disappeared with the said amount and efforts to trace him proved abortive”.

EFCC quoted the Bank as alleging that “The suspect was captured by a CCTV footage, walking into the ATM gallery, before using a nylon bag to cover the CCTV”.

The suspect who has been on the run and was recently apprehended in Lagos, according to the commission has made useful statements and will soon be charged to court as soon as investigations are completed.
