One of the branch managers of Nnamdi Okonkwo-led-Fidelity Bank is in troubled waters after he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) for helping himself with the savings of a customer of the bank.

The suspect, Augustine Odinawo who is the manager of Gwagwalada branch is being accused of stealing N25million belonging to one Mrs. Juliet Uzor.

Odinawo was said to have connived with some staff of the bank in the branch to perpetrate the act.

Reports have it that Mrs. Uzor dropped a draft of N25m for onward payment to the account of Abuja Geographic Information System (AGIS), but instead, Odinawo conspired to open a fake ABIS account and paid the money into it. After the money cleared from the clearing house, the Fidelity Bank manager transferred his loot electronically to two company accounts from which he and his accomplice shared the money.
