A young girl allegedly lost N212,000 to a fraudster posing as a staff in First Bank, Ire-Akari branch, Lagos.
A CCTV footage taken inside the bank shows the thief parading the floors of the bank while looking for an easy prey. No security personnel was on ground to notice his suspicious behavior.
According to Ujunwa who shared the story, the man had walked up to a girl waiting in line to deposit money and told the girl that bulk deposits are to be done in a different hall. The girl went with him into the bulk room thinking he was a staff and he collected the money, claiming he wanted to deposit it for her. As the girl waited, he distracted her and made away with the money.
There was no security personnel inside the bank to stop him as he looked around surreptitiously with the money he stole in his hand before sneaking out the door. The face of the criminal is not clear in the CCTV footage but the victim and her relatives are asking for help in identifying him.
