The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a Lagos banker, Elizabeth Modupe Osunjuyigbe, for an alleged fraudulent diversion of funds to the tune of over N34m.

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement on Friday, April 30, said the Lagos zonal office of the anti-graft agency quizzed the suspect said to be an employee of Access Bank Plc.

According to him, “The suspect, who was arrested on Thursday April 29, 2021, allegedly sent a fraudulent request sometime in January to the Branch Service Manager of Access Bank, Adeola Odeku, Lagos State, to issue a draft of the sum of N31,330,165 in favour of one Best Timland Nigeria Limited.

Investigations revealed that the suspect allegedly forged a solicitor’s letter dated January 19, 2021, directing the bank to issue the draft in favour of Best Timland, claiming that request was for the payment of rent to the landlord of one of the bank’s branches in Akwa-Ibom State.”
