Female banker arraigned for stealing

A 27-year-old female banker, Ogunumoye Oluwaseun, was yesterday arraigned at an Abeokuta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Ogun State for allegedly pilfering depositors’ money.

She was alleged to have stolen N691,050, belonging to Astra Polaris Micro Finance Bank (APMFB) in Abeokuta.

The accused, whose address is unknown, is facing a charge of stealing.

She denied the charge, but police prosecutor Sunday Eigbejiale insisted that the accused committed the offence from May 2016 to August 2017 at Astra Polaris Micro Finance Bank, Onikolobo branch, Abeokuta.

He said the accused, a marketer, collected money from customers and failed to remit same to the bank.

“The accused collected N691,050 from customers and failed to remit it to her employer.

“When the theft was discovered, the accused absconded from work from October 4, 2017 and efforts to recover the money proved abortive,” the prosecutor said.

The offence contravenes Section 390 (9) of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun State, 2006.

The Chief Magistrate, Adeola Adelaja, granted her bail at N500, 000 with two sureties.

She adjourned the case till March 21 for hearing.
