Female banker in court for forgery, theft of customer’s N30m

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Monday

 arraigned a 41yrs old banker in Abuja for allegedly forging the signatures of a bank customer with the intention to defraud him of over N30 million.

Remilekun Momoh, an accountant with Unity Bank, Abuja, was arraigned before Justice Bello Kawu of the FCT High Court, Kubwa on a 15-count-charge, bordering on forgery and fraud.

Momoh pleaded not guilty to the charges. NAN reports that the defendant had earlier been arraigned in November 2016 over alleged fraud of N14 million.

The EFCC alleged that while at her duty post between May 2014 and May 2015, the defendant fraudulently forged the signatures of one Garba Mamu, who was a customer of Unity Bank.

The defendant allegedly transferred, in bits, over N30 million through a forged letter of transfer of funds into several designated accounts in other banks.

Counsel to the defendant, Lawrence Alabi, applied to the court for the defendant to continue on her initial bail terms.

Justice Kawu, while granting the request after the prosecuting counsel did not object, adjourned the matter until March 15, for continuation of hearing.

He also ordered that all the previous witnesses in the matter be recalled on the next adjourned date.
