GOV UDOM THREATENS ACCOUNT MANAGER

UDOM EMMAN
A Lagos-based banker, Mrs. Oyetola Oyeleke, who manages the accounts for Governor Udom Emmanuel, has called on Nigerian Police authorities to come to her aid over what she called “persistent threat on her life by the Governor and his associates.”
In a letter to the police, Mrs. Oyeleke stated that in 2009, while working for Guaranty Trust Bank Plc., she had received a call from Mr. Emmanuel, who wished to open a corporate account in the name of Chashar Farms Limited and wanted her to manage it. Mrs. Oyeleke stated that, shortly after opening the account, she discovered that Mr. Emmanuel’s Chashar Farms address did not exist.
She further disclosed that Mr. Emmanuel made several deposits in the account to the tune of N507m. According to her, one particular deposit of N300m could not be completed as the account name, and the number did not match.
In the face of that discrepancy, Mrs. Oyeleke revealed that her boss requested to speak with Mr. Emmanuel, adding that the future Governor declined. Instead, he instructed Mrs. Oyeleke to keep his account and transactions within it secret going forward. He also reportedly confirmed that the mismatched transaction of N300m belonged to him.
The banker asserted that Governor Emmanuel held a private meeting with her, instructing her to move his funds to an account with Ascorp Petroleum Limited. He further asked her to then loan the money from that account to companies at a 15 percent interest rate.
According to her, she subsequently loaned N375m through Ascorp Petroleum Limited to a company called Euroflow Designs Limited, an oil service company seeking to purchase a vessel.
She stated that, after a contract had fallen through, Euroflow was unable to pay back the loan on the timetable agreed by the two parties. However, she claimed that the company never denied receipt of the loan, adding that the debtor firm sought to meet with Mr. Emmanuel to assure him of their intention to repay the loan.
The banker disclosed that Mr. Emmanuel began to track her movement and soon ordered her to transfer his money to Zenith Bank. When she reminded him of their earlier arrangement, Mr. Emmanuel became enraged and threatened to kill her family and her, Mrs. Oyeleke claimed.
In a twist in the case, Guaranty Trust Bank Plc. informed the police that Mrs. Oyeleke engaged in the mismanagement of Chashar Farms’ account, and petitioned for her arrest. Bank and legal documents stated that she fraudulently accessed Chashar Farms’ account and diverted the funds for personal gains. The documents also portrayed Mrs. Oyeleke as working in concert with Mr. Emmanuel.
On May 25, 2015, Mrs. Oyeleke was arrested along with Jimi Bademosi and Godwin Adamolekun, the Director and Chairman, respectively, of Euroflow. They immediately released on bail the next day.
Sharaha Reporters, though could not reach Mrs. Oyeleke, said documents obtained so far indicate that police investigation into the shady financial transactions pertaining to Governor Emmanuel’s account was still ongoing. (Culled from Sahara Reporters)
