Three suspected fraudsters have been yesterday arraigned before a Lagos magistrate’s court, sitting at Igbosere, for allegedly hacking into an account at first bank Plc and fraudulently withdrawing N39 million.
The defendants are Ahmed Shehu, 27; Umar Mohammed, 30 and Ibrahim Ahmed, 41.
They have been arrested following a criticism by way of the management of First bank Plc through the top of the branch of Forensic Auditors, Akhanolu Solomon.
The Police prosecutor, Inspector Steven Molo, informed the court that the defendants committed the offence on January 25 at first bank plc, Oshodi branch, Lagos.
He said the defendants cast the fund transfer documents of First bank plc, and hacked into the account of the bank and fraudulently withdrew N39 million and shared it amongst themselves.
He added that the bank uncovered the fraud when it audited its account e book.
The suspects, who pleaded no longer guilty to the price, have been remanded in prison’s custody pending when they may be able to perfect their bail conditions.
