Anambra state police command yesterday arrested one Nneka Oragu, the Bank Manager , Nice Micro Finance Bank Nise , Eke Awka Branch who was declared wanted in some National Dailies last year over missing N10 Million fraudulent transactions.
Police sources in Awka said Nneka surrounded herself to them about 10 am and made startling revelation on how the transactions went and why she should not be held liable but was detained before the Bank Chairman Nneka’s statement was invited and detained too.
But the Bank Chairman was later released when a member of the Board of directors and a monarch, Igwe Iloh came calling but the bank manager is still being detained.
It would be recalled that Nice Micro finance bank was known as Nise Community bank before it was upgraded to Nice Micro finance bank. It has branches across Anambra state with headquarters at Nise Ngene-Awka junction.
The money allegedly missing according to the police source was over N15 Million but currently the bank estimates it to N10 Million rather than N8 Million initially dangled before the public.
The Awka bank manager was on the run and the Bank Chairman, Sir Chris Onoh had earlier made his statements when he was invited and questioned by the police on Tuesday over his roles but was allowed to go home on self recognition. Onoh is equally the President General of Nise town Union.
The magnitude of the fraud already exposed to the police and by another sacked senior staff of the bank implicated in some other sharp practices in the bank somehow will make heads roll soonest.
Police source said that the fraud perpetuated against shareholders of the bank has ran some of the bank’s branches aground.
The former Chairman of the Bank/ traditional ruler of Nise , Igwe Romanus Iloh, or the present Chairman, Sir Chris Onoh could not be contacted as their phones were not connecting as at press time
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Uche Ezeh said he is yet to be briefed by the CID allegedly handing the case as at press time.
