Former Banker Arraigned For Defrauding Customer Off N6.8m

By Adenosine (M)May 18, 2017, 08:09:25 AM


A 38-year-old ex-banker, Chidi Idems, who allegedly ob­tained N6.8 million from a customer under false pre­tence, on Wednesday ap­peared before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court.

Idems, a resident of Abule-Egba area of Lagos, pleaded not guilty to a five-count charge of conspiracy, stealing, obtaining under false pretence, forgery and presumption as to false pre­tence under certain circum­stances.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Mike Unah, told the court that the accused committed the offences on June 2, 2016 at Agidingbi area of Ikeja.

Unah alleged that the ac­cused, with others now at large, fraudulently obtained N6.8 million from one Ola­bisi Shittu on the pretext of assisting her to transfer the money to her customer in China.

He said the complainant, who had no idea that Idems had been sacked from the bank, transferred N6.8 mil­lion to him.

Unah said the accused converted the money to his own personal use and forged a telex transfer form showing that he had paid the money to the complain­ant’s customer.

The prosecutor said that Idems gave the forged docu­ment to Shittu, who had no idea it was fake adding that Shittu did not know that she had been duped until she received a call from her customer in China, who claimed he had not received the money.

“Shittu quickly rushed to the bank to report the accused to the head of op­erations, only to discover that Idems had been sacked from the bank months ago for another offence.

“The complainant said that when she called the ac­cused on phone to demand for her money, he started making up flimsy excuses. She said that after so much persistence on her part, Idems gave her a Zenith Bank cheque of N6.8 mil­lion.
