The police have accused two ex-employees of Ecobank Plc, Aghanenu Ikechukwu and Stephen Nduka, of forging and stealing N14.4 million from a customer.
Ikechukwu, 41, and Nduka, 36, were arraigned yesterday before Mr P. A. Adekomaya of the Igbosere Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.
They are standing trial on a four-count charge of conspiracy, forgery, stealing and conversion.
Prosecuting Inspector Ingobo Emby said the defendants and others at large committed the offence between last September and November at Ecobank Plc.
He said the defendants with intent to defraud, forged the instruction of the customer, Oluremi Egunjobi Christina.
