The Enugu Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested 12 bankers for suspected insider fraud in Enugu. The arrests were made on Friday.
The incident was announced on the EFCC’s social media accounts on Saturday.
According to the commission, the suspects moved funds from dormant accounts in an old generation bank to a different account. There were different beneficiaries of the fraud, but the EFCC claimed to have identified the principal beneficiary.
“The suspects are: Odeniyi Anthony, Deki Kingsley Onyekachi, Oguchukwu Ene, Elendu Chizaram, Anyakora Uchenna, Onah Kingsley, Akwe Elizabeth and Chinenye Grace Acibe,” the EFCC statement read in part.
“Others are: Victoria Ezedie, Chidi-Ukah Obinna, Etoh Lawrence Uzochukwu and Udeze Harrison.
“Preliminary investigations showed that the suspects allegedly stole funds from some dormant accounts in a branch of an old generation bank in Enugu.
“The stolen funds were transferred from the dormant accounts to various beneficiaries, with the principal beneficiary already identified by the EFCC.”
Investigations are still ongoing. The EFCC said that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations were completed.
