Police Nab First Bank Employee For Stealing Customer’s N303,000

Prosecution counsel Aminu Isaac told the court that the defendant committed the offence on January 21 at about 12:17 p.m. at the First Bank branch, Omitoro area along Ijede Road in Ikorodu.


Mr Isaac said the defendant stole an automated teller machine (ATM) card belonging to Abidemi Agbaje and withdrew N303,000 without her consent.


The prosecutor added that the complainant asked the defendant to help her remove her ATM card, which was ‘swallowed’ by the machine being an employee of the bank.


He noted that the complainant started receiving alerts of withdrawals from her account and immediately reported it to the bank management.


The prosecutor said the offence contravened sections 411, 287 and 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015, which stipulates three years jail term if found guilty.


The magistrate, G.O. Anifowoshe, admitted the defendant to N50,000 bail with two sureties.


She said the sureties must have evidence of tax payment, LASRRA and must be gainfully employed.


The magistrate adjourned the case until June 23 for trial.
