How Two Bankers Stole N47m From Account Holder After Obtaining Debit Cards Without His Consent

The High Court of Justice, Kano State has granted two bankers who defrauded a customer over N47 million bail.

The presiding judge, Justice Maryam Sabo granted the two bankers, Nuhu Demba and Mohammed Abdullahi Musa, bail on stringent conditions.

It was gathered that the suspects allegedly conspired and stole the sum of N47,452,055.45 from the account of one Mailafia Mohammed.

In his petition, the complainant alleged that on February 06, 2021, “he was attacked in his house by armed men who took away his mobile phone.

He further stated that on February 08, 2021, the incident was reported to First Bank of Nigeria Limited through the Manager, Dawanu Branch where he operated a savings account.

He added that after his statement, the bank management urged him to keep servicing the account as nothing had gone wrong with it.

According to him, on February 18, 2021, he went to make a withdrawal only to be informed that there was no money in the account.

He arguably requested his account statement and found out that N47, 452,055.45 has been withdrawn from the account through the use of an ATM Card.

Further investigation proved that the defendants stole the said amount from the complainant’s account through ATM and POS withdrawals.

The defendants perpetrated the fraud by using their positions to obtain ATM Cards without going through due process and without the knowledge of the account holder.
