The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has filed a 21count charge before an FCT High Court sitting in Zuba against a staff of Access Bank, Olawunmi Audu; and the Relationship Manager of De Chimex Aluminium and Steel Company, Uche Glory Michael Sado; over forgery and theft of N197.2 million from the account of a customer.

Audu and Sado were alleged to have conspired to transfer the money out of the De Chimex’s account domiciled with the bank.

According to the EFCC, the defendants allegedly transferred the funds to the account of Mikuch Global Ltd belonging to Michael Sado between May and June, 2018, in Abuja.

The offences are punishable under Sections 85, 287 and 364 of the Penal Code.

When the matter was called on Tuesday, defence counsel, Aliyu Hassan, informed the court that Audu was absent because she went for a medical examination, and therefore pleaded for an adjournment.

EFCC counsel, Halidu Mohammed, did not object to the application for adjournment.

Consequently, Justice A.O. Ebong adjourned the case to February 22, 2021.
