A court has ordered that a bank manager with Zenith bank be remanded in police custody for fraud.
A bank manager has been ordered to be remanded in police custody.
The order was given by a Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday. The court ordered that the Asaba branch manager of Zenith Bank Plc, Mr. Fidelis Egueke, be remanded in custody till December 1, pending hearing and determination of his bail application.
Justice Austine Chuka Obiozor ordered that Egueke be kept in the custody of Force Criminal Investigation Department (Force CID) Alagbon, Ikoyi, Lagos.
The order followed Egueke’s plea of ‘not guilty’ to three counts of conspiracy and N179million fraud.
Prosecution counsel Morufu A. Animashaun, told the court that between May 14, 2010 and December 31, 2019, at No. 2 Balogun Close, Ikoyi, Lagos, the defendant and others on the run conspired to obtain the said sum from a firm, Global Select Investment Services Ltd, “by false pretence that he will help the firm sell some goods and remit money to its bank account.”
Animashaun alleged that the defendant, upon selling the goods, diverted the proceeds to his Zenith Bank Account Number 1020019782, but told Global Select Investment Services that most of the goods imported from the USA were inferior and of low demand.
The court heard that the alleged offences contravened Section 8(a) and 1(1)(3) of the Advanced Fee Fraud and other Fraud Related Offences Act of 2006 and punishable under Section 390(7) Criminal Code Act of 2004.
