According to Punch Metro, Kehinde Adewuyi, a customer relationship manager for First Bank of Nigeria Limited, was arraigned before the Igbosere Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday for allegedly converting N52,628,000 from his employer’s account to his personal use.
Three counts of stealing-like behavior were brought against the 36-year-old suspect.
Punch Metro learned that Solomon Akhanolu and Owei Chris, the bank’s forensic auditors, filed a complaint that led to the suspect’s arrest by officers from the Lion Building Police Division.
The alleged fraud, according to the police, was discovered during an audit of the account, which revealed that the accused had defrauded the lender of N52,628,000.
The police examiner, Reuben Solomon, let the court know that Adewuyi perpetrated the wrongdoing with two others on the loose among February and Walk 2019 at the bank’s central command in Lagos.
Solomon also claimed that Adewuyi used forged signatures to steal money from the bank account of the Relationship Manager, Mobolaji Sunmoni, and the Group Head, Ademola Adegbusi.
