‘I Don’t Know How N600,000 Got Into My Account’


Workers of a new generation bank in Ogba, Ijaiye, are still at a loss as to how N600,000 was suddenly deposited in the account of an ex-student of Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, Osun State, in their bank.

Workers of a new generation bank in Ogba, Ijaiye, are still at a loss as to how N600,000 was suddenly deposited in the account of an ex-student of Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, Osun State, in their bank.

The ex-student, identified as Kazeem Mukaila, a resident of Olatorera Asumau Street, Alagbado, Lagos, according to the police in Lagos, allegedly opened a savings account with N1,000 on 14 July, 2008, on the directive of his elder brother identified as Mr. Abiodun.

Mr. Abiodun, who is reportedly based in Rivers State, Port Harcourt, had told his brother to open the account to enable him remit N300,000 to Kazeem. The suspect was supposed to use the money to pay for the admission he had just secured with the Lagos State College of Education, Ijanikin, Lagos.

When a call was, however, put through to Abiodun in Port Harcourt, he denied ever sending money, but admitted directing his younger brother to open an account in a bank to enable him remit some money to him to offset his school fees.

Kazeem was said to have gone to the bank on 17 July, 2008, slotted his ATM card into the machine, and discovered that the amount in his account was N600,000. He was alleged to have withdrawn N20,000 and left.

On 18 July, 2008, the bank management discovered the money in Kazeem’s account out of which N20,000 had been withdrawn.

The bank management traced Kazeem to his house through his address, but he was not at home. His mother, Mrs. Aminat Mukaila, told them that her son had gone out, but she gave them her son’s phone number.

The bank officials allegedly called Kazeem on Friday to come and ratify his account. Immediately he got to the bank’s Ogba branch, he was taken to the bank’s Marina headquarters on Lagos Island.

On interrogation, Kazeem allegedly told his interrogators that he did not know how the money entered his account. He was asked why he withdrew N20,000 when he did not know how the money entered his account. He was also asked why he did not raise an alarm or confirm from the management when he discovered the huge sum of money in his account. Kazeem told his interrogators that he felt God had answered his prayers and opened his way.

The police were immediately invited by the bank’s management and the accused was taken into police custody. Investigations by P.M.News revealed that the police and the bank management are not buying Kazeem’s explanations. They believe he is one of those emerging ATM fraudsters who is still learning. He is currently being detained pending proper investigation.

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
