|Crime / Female Banker Defrauds Customer N3m, Blames Uncertainty For Her Action by AloyEmeka9: 9:44pm On Jan 07, 2010|
Female banker defrauds customer N3m, blames uncertainty for her action
By CHRISTOPHER OJI
Thursday, January 7, 2010
A 26-year-old female banker, who was arrested by the police for allegedly stealing N3 million from a customer’s account has blamed fear of the unknown for her action.
Kemi Yisau, a staff of a new generation bank (names withheld) who is being interrogated at the Special Fraud Unit (SFU), Ikoyi, Lagos, told Daily Sun that with the present war on banks by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), no bank staff is sure of what fate has in stock for him or her.
She said: “No banker knows if he or she would survive the tsunami going on in the banking sector now. Soludo came with his wahala and left, now Sanusi has started his own, people are losing their jobs in the banking sector by the day. So, no one is sure about who would survive the mass sack going on in the banking sector.”
The young lady, who revealed that she was still furthering her education in a University said: “I have not finished my schooling and if I am sacked, who is going to assist me. After thinking of all these, I decided to save some money in case of any eventuality. It is quite pathetic sitting down and counting other people’s money and your job is being threatened each day you come to the office. I was tired of the mass retrenchment going on in the banking sector.”
Yisau advised CBN Governor, Mr. Sanusi Lamido, to take it easy with banking sector, as staff are jittery over the incessant sack in the sector.
The commissioner of police in-charge of the unit, Mr. Saba Ndagi said the suspect stole the money from the customer’s account between January and November, 2009. Ndagi explained the suspect used her position as the customers’ account officer to collect the said amount.
According to him, the suspect was giving fictitious balances to the company each time it requested for it’s credit balance.
He revealed that the scam blew open when the customer stormed the bank while she was not on duty and requested for his balance and was given the correct statement.
Ndagi said when the bank management received complaint from the customer that there were discrepancies in what the suspect told him and the last statement of account, he invited the police.
The police boss vowed to charge the suspect to court after recovering the money
|Politics / Al-queda Infiltrates Nigeria by AloyEmeka9: 7:20pm On Jan 07, 2010|
Al-Queda infiltrates Nigeria
…As bomb scare looms
By NGOZI EMEDOLIBE
THE bomb incidents of last week are daunting. The two principal characters- Olayiwola Ahmed and Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, (who attempted to bomb the Logemo House office of Super screen TV and Northwest Airline flight 253 in Detroit, United States respectively) are even more daunting.
While Nigerians are relishing the fragile stability occasioned by the socio-political clime at the moment, they had been ruffled by news of a bomb explosion at Superscreen TV, a few days to Christmas. Police authorities have been unveiling facts about the bomber, who National Daily gathered was on a mission to deliver wrapped Christmas gifts, specifically targeted at some unnamed staffers of the TV house.
As the news of the Logemo House bombing, continues to be interpreted from variegated spectacles, the international community came forth with something in bad light for the country and its re-branding campaign, as 23 year old Farouk Abdul Mutallab, confessed to being recruited by Al-Queda, a terrorists group to bomb the Northwest Airline, bearing him and other passengers, as the plane was preparing to land at an airport in Detroit, the renowned automobile city in US.
National Daily sources told the paper that the two incidents, signal a bad moment for security vis a vis Nigeria's relations with some foreign powers, especially the United States.
According to a source, the fact that a Nigerian has confessed would make the international terrorist police to beam their search light on Nigerians, in the hope that terrorists have infiltrated the country.
'It is clearly a bad sign. It will ruffle a lot of feathers on our diplomatic dealings with other countries especially America. It will be difficult for them not to believe that Nigeria is a training ground for terrorism. It will also leave a sour taste on the tongues of Nigerian travellers as this would make security operatives in foreign lands to be focussed on their activities hence forth', he said.
According to sources, Umar Farouk Mutallab, had boarded a KLM plane which left Lagos on December 24, 2009, but was transferred to Northwest Airline, in line with the operations of KLM, which sometimes transfers US bound passengers from Schipol Airport in line with arising contingencies.
National Daily gathered that commotion began as Northwest Airlines Flight 253, carrying 278 passengers and 11 crew members from Amsterdam, prepared to land in Detroit just before noon Friday, as people were celebrating Christmas. The passengers said they smelled smoke, saw a glow, and heard what sounded like firecrackers. It was then that one person climbed over others and jumped on the Farouk Mutallab who was trying to ignite an explosive device.
"It sounded like a firecracker in a pillowcase. First there was a pop, and then (there) was smoke," a co-passenger on the plane, identified as Peter Smith said.
Smith also said one passenger, sitting opposite Farouk Mutallab, had climbed over passengers, went across the aisle and tried to restrain him. That attempt, the paper gathered led to burns on both the heroic passenger and the suspect.
Afterward, the suspect was taken to a front-row seat with his pants cut off. Multiple law enforcement officials confirmed Mutallab appeared badly burned on his legs, indicating that the explosive may have been strapped somewhere there. Sources also said the components were apparently mixed in-flight and included a powdery substance, which security agents at the airports in Lagos and Schipol may have failed to identify.
What may have led the said Umar Farouk Abdullab into the act still remains a mystery. A source told National Daily that he is from an affluent home. Born to wealthy parents, the 23 year old who had spent three years in a London university is said to be the son of a former bank chairman, who is believed to be wielding a lot of influence in Nigeria's corridor of power. He claimed that he had been recruited by Al Quada before being taken to a hospital, where he is being treated at the moment.
Meanwhile, the revelation that Farouk Mutallab, hails from Nigeria is jolting the government as well as Federal Aviation Authorities.
A spokesman for the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Akin Olukunle, said all passengers and their luggage are screened before boarding international flights. He also said the airport in Lagos cleared a U.S. Transportation Security Administration audit in November.
"We had a pass mark. We actually are up to standards in all senses," he said.
Information and Communications Minister, Dora Akunyili, has condemned the attempted bombing. She stressed that the government has opened its own investigation into the suspect and will work with U.S. authorities on the issue.
"We state very clearly that as a nation we abhor all forms of violence," Akunyili said in a statement issued immediately after the incident.
With the incessant attempted bombings which rocked the scene last week, Nigerians seem to be watching in apprehension, even as security authorities assure that all was well.

You are seriously trying to stir an argument with a link from wikipedia? . I mean, why should Christians hate Jews for killing Jesus when that simple act is the nucleus of their redemption?. Christians actually thank Jews for killing Jesus because His death and resurrection brought everlasting hope to mankind. Stick to your Harvard law books because you don't understand Christianity at all.

The Nazis didn't kill in the name of Christianity unlike suicide bombers who do their in the name of Allah.

What you are saying is preposterous. This guy may be christian but all his actions points to one particular religion and you know that. Yorubas are not known for this behavior and Christians likewise are not known for this behavior. So do the math.
|Politics / Re: Lest We Forget Our Own Internal Bomber by AloyEmeka9: 6:46pm On Jan 07, 2010|
For sure his father is/was muslim but there is a very high likelihood he is one too. If not, why should a Yoruba man partake in suicide bombing? Where did he learn that behavior?

|Politics / Afe Babalola Wants Nigeria To Cut Ties With US by AloyEmeka9: 6:14pm On Jan 07, 2010|
Afe Babalola wants Nigeria to cut ties with US
Wednesday, January 6, 2010
Eminent lawyer , Chief Afe Babalola wants Nigeria to review its diplomatic relations with the United States of America. Reacting to the listing of Nigeria on the terror watch list by Washington after the arrest of Farouk Abdulumutallab for allegedly trying to bomb a plane in America, Babalola described as ‘unjust and disturbing’ the classification of Nigeria as a country of dangerous people on account of one isolated incident.
”It is unfair and disturbing to use one single case against Nigeria. Citizens of other countries, including Americans and Britons, have been arrested for grievous offences around the world, and only such individuals have been held accountable.
“One recalls the case of a British citizen executed recently in China for smuggling into that country a large consignment of cocaine. China did not blacklist Britain.
“It is more disturbing because the alleged offender has not been found guilty in the face of the law,” Babalola argued.
Meanwhile, Babalola has blamed the poor quality of education in Nigeria for the emergence of deviant youths like Farouk Abdulmutallab, the 23-year old arrested in America for alleged terrorism.
Addressing pioneer students of the Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti,at a welcome dinner party Monday night, the former Pro-chancellor of the university of Lagos said profiling[b] “Nigerians as a dangerous people because of one person is wrong and unacceptable but the truth remains that Nigerian universities have failed in the past two decades in their duty of educating our youths properly”
The septuagenarian, who has built the most comprehensive private university in the country, said he was determined to reverse the ugly trend by investing enormous resources in the university built onabout 130 hectares of land.

No, your intuition is misguided. I am irritated that questions about the safety of the truck is being circumvented by people who claim that such a request is because the truckmaker is igbo. I dont stay in Nigeria, I see black ppl like once in a while, so no I dont care if the car makes was green.

|Politics / Re: With 626 Billion Naira, Is Thief Erastus Akingbola More Liquid Than Lagos State? by AloyEmeka9: 11:58am On Jan 07, 2010|
Because we don't know how to create wealth. Abiola nearly achieved that but messed up in handing his businesses over to his family. If you watch Oyibos and how they do business, you will realize that they don't necessarily hand over the affairs of their businesses to their children. Their children may still be the heir apparent but the affairs of the business is handled professionally while the children receive the dividends. You wouldn't blame us if we don't trust any professional Akingbola with our businesses because we stole the one we used to start off and are scared another sharp guy will rob us off our loot. That's why there is no Nigerian business that has lasted over 4 generations. If we are politically stable without this Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba rancor, people can relax and do business without fearing their managers, the banks etc.
|Politics / Re: With 626 Billion Naira, Is Thief Erastus Akingbola More Liquid Than Lagos State? by AloyEmeka9: 11:41am On Jan 07, 2010|
Nigeria has too many millionaires but how many businessmen in Nigeria have come of age and hit the billion dollar mark like our fellow Egyptian, South African and Tunisian business moguls in Africa?. You are naming Wale babalakin of all people. Chisco can buy Wale, his company and his household and still have some change left.
|Politics / Re: With 626 Billion Naira, Is Thief Erastus Akingbola More Liquid Than Lagos State? by AloyEmeka9: 11:36am On Jan 07, 2010|
Same way Igbos have Anthony Ezenna, Emeka Offor, Ekene dili chukwu etc. We are talking about dollar billionaires and the two names you mentioned above are not dollar billionaires. I even doubt if Otedola is a dollar billionaire but Dangote for sure is and Adenuga became one after being bankrolled by IBB.

Wealth is not when you steal money that belongs to the masses. Name one Yoruba billionaire who built his business empire on personal sweat without siphoning money from one government agency or another apart from Abiola?. Is it Mike
|Politics / Re: With 626 Billion Naira, Is Thief Erastus Akingbola More Liquid Than Lagos State? by AloyEmeka9: 11:26am On Jan 07, 2010|
These are false claims. Where did Erastus Akingbola get such money. It's like the Abacha's the media said they stole over $5BN; I seriously doubt he stole that much, not even half of it.

He is a disgruntled pentecostal preacher who is mad at God because his ministry refused to pick momentum like Winners chapel and co. May be he should try a career in the police force or EFCC becayse this clerical job is not working out for him. Help me beg him to leave Oyakhilome, Oyedepo and co alone because all the weapons he is fashioning against them shall never prosper.

Thou shall not judge. In your quest to dent Oyakhilome's image, you are committing a mortal sin by judging him.
