Police Arrests Okonkwo For Having 25 Bank Accounts...

The Special Fraud Unit, Ikoyi in Lagos State, has arrested a 39-year-old trader, Okonkwo Nwachukwu, for allegedly opening multiple accounts with Zenith Bank, under different identities.
“While the Customer Service office was checking the documents, Okonkwo allegedly went to the Marketing Unit and collected another savings account opening package and completed same with another name, Ogueji Nnamdi. He allegedly returned to the Customer Service Desk and presented same for account opening with another National Identity Card bearing Ogueji Nnamdi.”
Okonkwo's action is meant to defraud financial institutions and members of the public...

A statement by SFU Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ngozi Isintume-Agu, said the SFU Commissioner of Police had received a petition from the bank on February 12, 2014.

The petition: “The petition alleged that Okonkwo had appeared at the Amuwo Odofin branch of Zenith Bank to open a savings account and presented an already completed savings account opening package with the name, Obiozor Ifeanyi, and identified himself as such with a National Identity Card."

Okonkwo’s attempt to open another savings account within minutes with another identity was said to have aroused the suspicion of the Customer Service Officer.

Upon searching the bank’s system with Okonkwo’s phone number, the customer service officer discovered that he already possessed about 25 savings accounts at various branches under different names.

The statement added, “It was further alleged that Okonkwo also operated a corporate account with number 1012000129, belonging to Chukon Integrated Limited, and he also identified himself as Okonkwo Nwachukwu when he opened the said account.

“A native of Okija Ihiala LGA of Anambra State, Okonkwo is into cargo business, owns an office at Block 4, Shop 169 A.P.T. Market Trade Fair, Lagos.”

Okonkwo is claiming that the over 25 accounts is to enable him run his business successfully. 
But the SFU said he forged a lot of documents to carry out the fraud and they are now tracking his activities.
