Reactions As N1.1bn Is Traced To Ex-Globus Bank Staff

Federal High Court in Abuja has frozen over N1.1 billion in accounts linked to former Globus Bank staff accused of hacking into the bank’s system and stealing N3.5 billion.

The accounts, domiciled in Fidelity Bank, GT Bank, Access Bank, and Wema Bank, belong to Haril Global Solutions Ltd, Abdullahi Abubakar Sadiq, Onobun Oluwaseun Olumide, and Oluwaseun Adeniyi Afolabi.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had requested the court to freeze the accounts, citing intelligence reports and evidence of the hacking incident.

According to the EFCC, the former bank staff, including Babatunde Idris Olayiwola, Chinedu Ihuma, and Igwe George Benedict Obinna, used their knowledge of the bank’s software platform to access and steal customer funds.

The court’s order was made following an ex-parte motion filed by the EFCC, which alleged that the defendants had hacked into the bank’s system and transferred funds into various accounts.

The EFCC also stated that the bank’s management had earlier approached a Lagos court for a freezing order against the accounts.

Justice Inyang Ekwo granted the EFCC’s request and adjourned the case for the commission to provide reports of the final outcome of its investigation.
