WEMA Bank Manager Docked Over Bribe To Police Officer

Posted on March 22, 2022


An Assistant Superintendent of Police attached to Area G Command, Ogba, Lagos State, ASP Jonathan Egwemi, has done the unthinkable by arresting a WEMA Bank PLC manager, Ojo Oladipupo, for allegedly offering him bribe to the tune of millions on Naira,in order to prevent him from investigating the bank in alleged money laundering deal worth over N1.7Bn.

P.M.EXPRESS reports that aside arresting the manager, Oladipupo, he was equally charged before the Ogba Magistrates Court for the alleged money inducement to the Police officer.

The Police alleged the bank manager to have come to the Area G Command and offered the officer, ASP Jonathan Egwumi, the money so as to scuttle investigations over shady deals involving WEMA Bank and Director of Shibahwell Energy Limited, Adewole Isaac, to the tune of over N1.7b suspected to be proceeds of illegal activities.

However, when the manager, Oladipupo, who may have thought that he would have his way, offered the money, he was immediately arrested and detained at the Command for his conduct and later charged before the Court.

When he was arraigned, he pleaded not guilty.

 The prosecutor, Supol Lucky Ihiehie, asked the Court to give a date for hearing to enable the Police to prove that he actually committed the alleged offence.

The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O. A. Layinka, granted him bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

The matter was adjourned till 11th April, 2022, for mention when the matter may likely be joined with the sister matter before the Court, which warranted offering bribe to the Police officer.
