Access Bank MD, Herbert Wiwge, was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the bank’s head office in Victoria Island on Friday.
The anti-graft agency raided the bank’s headquarter in the afternoon, arrested the MD, Herbert Wiwge, and took away some sensitive documents.
Sources told OrijoReporter that Wiwge’s arrest was not unconnected to ex-petroleum minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke’s loot traced to some banks’ chiefs.
Meanwhile, Fidelity Bank MD, who was earlier arrested by EFCC over an alleged $115 million received from Alison-Madueke, was on Thursday released.
During his detention, the bank named Balarabe Musa as acting MD.
