How Sacked Nigerian Banker Stole N14million From ATM Gallery


A 34-year-old Nigerian man and former banker, named Emmanuel Onuma, has been reportedly arrested by the police after he was caught breaking into the Automated Teller Machine gallery of the bank he once worked with to steal N14million at the Garki, Abuja branch of the new generation bank on the 19th of October, 2018.

While parading the suspect alongside others in Abuja on Wednesday, the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Operations, Federal Capital Territory Police Command, Valentine Olumese, disclosed that the ex-banker was dismissed in August for fraudulent activities.

“On November 1, in furtherance of an ongoing investigation, police operatives attached to the Garki Division arrested one Emmanuel Onuma, who broke into the ATM lobby of a bank located in Garki on October 19 at about midnight and stole the sum of N14m,” Olumese stated.

While further explaining that the suspect confessed that he converted the money to $33,000 in Abuja and Kaduna for ease of movement, he said;

“Upon his arrest, the following amounts of money were recovered from him as exhibits: cash sum of $28,000; N1,650,120 and nine pieces of Ghana cedis. Other exhibits recovered from him include one new SIM card and flight tickets.”

While admitting to the crime, in an interview with journalists, Unuma disclosed that he carried out the act because the bank failed to pay his benefits after sacking him.

“I worked with the bank for 11 years and I was not settled; no benefits, no settlement; but there is no justification for doing something wrong,” he said while declining to make further statements.
