Former FCMB Employee Sent To Prison After Being Found Out To Have Done This

Felix Diete, a former employee of the First City Monument Bank (FCMB), has been sent to prison.

The man was sentenced to four years imprisonment for stealing the sum of N2, 000, 000 from funds belonging to a customer.

He was sentenced to prison by a Federal High Court in Yenogoa, Bayelsa State on Monday.

In a statement signed by the Head, Media and Publicity, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Wilson Uwujaren, on Wednesday, Diete was arraigned in January 2017 on three counts.

In September 2016, three customers of the FCMB had lodged a complaint against the bank official that they gave him the sum of N6 million to deposit into their accounts but he only deposited N4 million and made away with N2 million.

The statement partly read, “The convict was arraigned in January 2017 on three counts bordering on stealing, contrary to Section 383 and punishable under 390 (6) (b) (8) and 9 of Criminal code CAP C- 38 of the revised edition (Laws of the Federation of Nigeria) 2007 read along with Section 1(1)(d) of the Failed Bank(Recovery of Debts) and Financial Malpractices in Bank Act CAP B3 of the revised edition (Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria) 2007.

“One of the three counts read: ‘That you, Felix Diete, sometime in September 2016 at Port Harcourt within the judicial division of this Honorable Court being an employee of First City Monument Bank did fraudulently steal the sum of Two Million Naira (N 2, 000,000 00) only, property of Ukenna Ngozi Godswill, a customer of First City Monument Bank and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 383 and punishable under 390 (6) (b)( 8) and 9 of Criminal Code CAP C- 38 of the revised edition (Laws of the Federation of Nigeria) 2007 read along with Section 1(1)(d) of the Failed Bank (Recovery of Debts) and Financial Malpractices in Bank Act CAP B3 of the revised edition (Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria) 2007.’

“The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges. His plea prompted the prosecuting counsel, Adebayo Soares, to prepare for trial which lasted four years and resulted in his conviction.

“In his judgment on Monday, Justice Inyang said the prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt on count one and convicted and sentenced Diete to four years imprisonment on the count. The judge, however, discharged him on counts 2 and 3 on the grounds that he denied ever seeing the other two customers who came and testified as pw2 and pw3.

“Diete’s journey to the correctional centre started sometime on September 2, 2016, when three customers of FCMB complained that they gave the convict the sum of N6 million to deposit into their accounts but only deposited N4 million and made away with N2 million.”
