EFCC Declares Heritage Bank Employee Wanted for N27m Fraud

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared a former employee of Heritage Bank Plc wanted for an alleged N27 million fraud.

According to the EFCC, the suspect, Mrs Ayanlola Temitayo (nee Bademosi), is wanted in a case of conspiracy, forgery and obtaining money under false pretences.

She was alleged to have forged a customer’s documents and fraudulently obtained a loan facility using the customer’s fixed deposit as collateral to secure the sum.

The native of Ondo West Local Government Area in Ondo State, dark complexioned, is 40 years old and of average height.

She is said to speak Yoruba and English languages fluently and her last known address is No 44, Akinlawon Agboola Close, Jericho, Ibadan, Oyo State.

The EFCC said, “All efforts to execute a duly signed Warrant of Arrest obtained from the Magistrate Court 1, Iyaganku have so far proved abortive. The suspect is at large while all efforts to apprehend her have proved futile.”

As a result, the anti-graft urged “anybody having useful information as to her whereabouts should contact the commission in its Enugu, Kano, Lagos, Gombe, Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Maiduguri and Abuja offices or through these numbers: 0809 3322 644 (0809 EFCC NIG), 08183322644 (0818 EFCC NIG); its e-mail address: info@efccnigeria.org or the nearest police station and other security agencies.”

Also declared wanted by the EFCC was Mr Adesanya Oluwatosin Adewale allegedly involved in a case of forgery and stealing to the tune of about N3.5 million.

The suspect, according to EFCC, using a forged letter of non-indebtedness, supposedly issued by Standard Chartered Bank, is alleged to have obtained a bank draft from Guaranty Trust Bank to pay off a loan facility he had obtained from the former.

“As soon as his account was credited with the sum, Adesanya withdrew the money and disappeared.

“Efforts to execute a duly signed Warrant of Arrest obtained from the Magistrate Court 1, Iyaganku have so far proved abortive,” the agency said.

Mr Adewale is a native of Ijebu Ode Local Government Area in Ogun State and dark in complexion. He is 42 years old of an average height, who speaks Yoruba and English languages fluently.

“His last known address is No 7 Oganiji Layout, Idi Rogbo Street, Off Adeoyo Ring Road, Ibadan, Oyo State,” the EFCC said.
