Doctor Sues FCMB Plc For Alleged Issuing Fake Foreign Currency

Posted on June 7, 2017

A medical doctor, Olutunde Oni has sued First City Monument Bank, FCMB Plc over an alleged issuance of fake currency which was discovered when he attempted to spend same money in Germany.

In a charge sheet number I/134/2017 filed before Justice R. B Akintola of the Oyo State High Court sitting in Ibadan, Dr Oni claimed that he was issued counterfeit Euros sometime in 2015 at one of the branches of FCMB in Ibadan when he was about to proceed on the journey.

Joined in the suit is the branch manager of the bank, Mr. Folorunso Abisoye.

Counsel for the claimant, Mr Ade Fajemiroye, prayed the court to hear the case in default because the defendants failed to file their defence.

He also prayed the court that the defendants had been served with all the court processes by the court bailiff.

However, the prayers were denied by Justice Akintola, who listed the case for hearing on October 10, 2017.

He said, “Let us serve them on time because you are serving outside the jurisdiction.”

It was gathered that Oni was arrested in Germany after a pharmacy store alerted security operatives when he, Oni, tendered the alleged fake Euros in exchange for a product he purchased.

He was released after he wrote a statement to prove his innocence.
