The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has at last commenced investigations into the alleged fraudulent and unprofessional activities of Diamond Bank Nigeria Plc.
It should be recalled that Diamond Bank was accused by many of their customers who have turned into petitioners, of engaging in many criminal, fraudulent and unprofessional practices in the last twenty years.
Imo Initiative had on the 9th of April 2016 reported how a notable businessman in Imo State and Managing Director of AL-CLEMENT ENTERPRISES, Prince Amobi Alfred Ugochukwu petitioned the anti-graft
agency, giving details of how Diamond Bank reportedly connived with officials of Imo State Government in 1997 to defraud, frustrate and kill his once flourishing business.
In his petition dated 10th March 2016, Prince Amobi Ugochukwu made damning exposures and revelation against Diamond Bank Plc (see attached Petition). This was also published in many social media and
Print Media platforms. Information from a high profile source confirmed that on receiving the Petition, the EFCC commenced discreet investigation but the management and owners of the bank reportedly used their influence and connection in high places to stall the process.
However, the relentless disposition of the Petitioner, Prince Amobi Ugochukwu to the matter, has eventually forced the EFCC to open up the file of the Diamond Bank Nigeria Plc.
Consequently, the Head of the Legal Department of the Bank who before now had been giving spurious defense on the allegation against Diamond Bank (by Prince Amobi Ugochukwu) has been summoned by the EFCC. Also the petitioner, Prince Amobi Ugochukwu who had already presented various documents to the EFCC to buttress his points has been invited to appear before the anti –graft agency on Friday the 27th of October 2017 at 10.00am In its letter of invitation to Prince Amobi Ugochukwu dated 20th September 2017 and signed by Johnson A. Babalola, Zonal Head (South East Zone, Enugu), the EFCC wrote…………… ‘’This Commission is investigating a case in which the need to obtain certain clarification from you has become imperative. In view of the above, you are kindly requested to report for an Interview with the undersigned through the Head Intelligence and Special Operations section on Friday 27th of October 2017 at 10.00am. Your cooperation in this regard is solicited please” The letter stated.
It is expected that at the end of investigation, Diamond Bank Nigeria Plc. would be exposed formally, for what it is: A bank that engages in unprofessional activities.
