A man identified as Hammed Folorunsho Lanre, an Engineer, has been arrested by the The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ilorin Zonal Office, for allegedly withdrawing money from his friend’s bank account.
The Engineer was reported to have withdrawn the money using an Automated Teller Machine, ATM.

Trouble started when the suspect’s Friend wrote a petition to the Commission, alleging that the said sum was fraudulently transferred from his account domiciled in Stanbic IBTC.
The Commission, while investigating the petition, discovered that the said money was transferred into Hammed’s wallet in bet9ja’s account.
