Luck ran out on an employee of one of the new generation banks in Ilepo area in Ejigbo, Lagos state, Anthony Nicholas, when he was nabbed while attempting to withdraw N32m from a dead customer’s account.
According to reports, the 36-year-old banker was aware of the customer’s death and decided in conniving with a Junior staff, Walter to claim the late customer’s N32m.
Knowing the drill, Anthony reportedly processed documents to enable him claim the money as beneficiary. He allegedly gave the said documents to Walter to come to the bank in order to claim the money as planned.
