Photos: EFCC arrests Fidelity Bank employee for allegedly stealing N137M

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibadan zonal office, has arrested one Kehinde Olumide Agbabiaka, a sales agent of Fidelity Bank Plc, for allegedly stealing N137 million .

A statement signed by the commission’s spokesperson, Tony Orilade, on Monday, September 16, said that Agbabiaka’s arrest was due to a petition jointly filed by the bank’s Regional Security Officer and the Cluster Control and Compliance Manager.

According to the statement , the suspect allegedly supressed, diverted and stole the money from personal and corporate accounts of a customer in Ibadan .
Filed on August 20, 2019, the petition alleged that Agbabiaka committed the offence between January 2017 and July 2019.

The suspect, who was the account officer attached to the customer, was said to be visiting the business premises of the victim weekly to collect cash with the understanding that he would remit same to his accounts domiciled in the bank’s Challenge, Ibadan branch.

But, instead of depositing the money, Agbabiaka was said to have at different times remitted only a portion and on many occasions diverted the whole sum to personal use.

“In order to cover its criminal acts, the suspect, according to the petition, would rather issue fictitious bank slips to deceive the customer that he truly deposited the sums.
This continued until the customer reviewed the statement of his account and reconciled same with the cash collection register,” the statement said .

It was then they discovered Agbabiaka’s fraudulent deeds, prompting the bank to put up the petition.

The statement further said, “So far, the EFCC investigators have established a prima facie case of diversion and stealing against the suspect.
Further investigations also revealed that he had used the suppressed sums to build houses, purchase cars, invest in fixed deposits and insurance policies.”

He also gave part of the loot to people as friendly loans.

Some of the items have been recovered and registered as exhibits.

EFCC’s spokesperson said he would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded .
