Court remands ex-bank manager for N24m fraud

Justice Abdulazeez Anka of a Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday ordered the prison remand of a former Manager of the Oyingbo, Ebute Meta branch of Diamond Bank Plc, Chinedu Oguike, over an alleged fraud of N24m.

The judge ordered Oguike’s prison remand shortly after he was arraigned on Tuesday by the police Special Fraud Unit.

The three counts pressed against the defendant bordered on conspiracy, obtaining money by false pretences and advanced fee fraud.

The police, in the charge tendered in court by their prosecutor, CSP Effiong Asuquo, accused Oguike of obtaining N24m from one Ufomba Nnabugwu by falsely representing that he would deliver a property in the Ijegun Egba area of Lagos to the victim.
