1 Security Man Breaks ATM, Steals N12m on 25th June 2013, 10:05 pm


A security man and employee of
First Bank Nigeria Plc, Jibowu
Branch, Seyi Jaiyeola, is standing
trial at a magistrate's court in
Ebute Meta for allegedly breaking
the company's automated teller machine and stealing a sum of
N12, 533,900.
The bank's branch Service
Manager, Mr. Kayode Aiyewunmi,
who gave evidence in court, said
Jaiyeola was on a N20, 000 monthly pay and was a member
of the Odua People's Congress.
He said the company had
observed that one of the bank's
four ATMs was having a
reconciliation problem and had employed the service of an
expert to help unravel
mysterious disappearances of
Aiyewunmi said, "We discovered
that there was always a shortage of cash in the machine.
"Despite our reconciliation
efforts, the ATM was still having
problems and we engaged the
service of an expert who
submitted his report and said the machine did not have any
reconciliation issue.
"He said somebody was
breaking into the machine in the
middle of the night to steal the
cash. "I reported the matter to my
boss, who said I should conduct
an investigation into the matter.
"When the last breakage
happened, we went to play back
the branch's CCTV, and we now saw Jaiyeola in the middle of the
night, opening the window at
the back of my office. There's a
control panel which controls the
security door, which he touched.
So, the CCTV stopped." He said it was at that point the
company concluded he was the
brain behind the theft.
He said after the matter was
reported at the Onipanu Police
station, and the accused was arrested, he led them to his
house, where he allegedly
confessed to the crime.
Aiyewunmi said, "When we got
to his house for a search, we
recovered N243,945 cash. The police then asked him what else
he did with the money. He said
he bought a car, which was
parked at the house there, a
Toyota Corolla. Then we
recovered a new generator. He also took the police to the
building he was constructing
which was near completion." He
said after recovering the item,
First Bank transferred the matter
to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba.
Jaiyeola was arraigned on a five
counts of fraud and stealing and
was subsequently granted bail in
the sum of N1m with two
sureties in like sum. The prosecution counsel, Mr.
Ishola Samuel, asked for an
adjournment to help source
some legal citations.
The magistrate, Mrs. M.O
Tanimola, adjourned the matter till July 15. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
