A bank customer with the United Bank of Africa, UBA, Mr. Eddy Onyenweuzo has petitioned the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Public Petitions on alleged fraudulent activities in his account to the tune of N88 million
The petition was submitted by Hon. Obinna Chidoka (PDP, Anambra) on behalf of the petitioner
Consequently, the committee headed by Hon. Uzoma Nkem-Abonta (PDP, Abia) had been directed by the speaker to investigate the claims in the petition with a view to ascertaining the truth of the matter.
In the petition made available to Nigerian Pilot, Mr. Onyenweuzo said he was a major distributor of Unilever Nigeria Plc for over 30 years and that payments for all his transactions to the company was routed through UBA from 2001.
He explained that the transaction went on “smoothly until 2006,” when he discovered a foul play and that he was initially “ripped off of over N38 million.”
The petitioner lamented he later discovered that the massive fraud on his account was to the tune of N88 million.
Onyenweuzo further hinted that he had approached many authorities, including the Bankers’ Committee, the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, and the Public Complaints Commission, in an attempt to get back his money to no avail
He said he decided to write the petition to the House to carry out a thorough investigation on the matter in the interest of justice.
