Delta State Police Command is investigating a staff of Sterling bank Effurun branch, identified as Mrs. Favour Fame-Eruagbere, who allegedly defrauded customers of the bank of the sum of N300million.
The female bank worker was said to have approached some account owners to grant her permission to be using their money for business, while she would be giving the customer a certain percentage every month.
It was discovered last week by one of the customers, that the woman stopped coming to work and an attempt to reach her on phone was not successful as her lines were switched off.
On getting to her house around Living Faith Church at water resources, Effurun, where she lived, it was alleged that she had also absconded.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in the State, DSP Bright Edafe confirmed the incident.
The Police spokesman said the suspect had not been declared wanted, because there was a process for declaring someone wanted.
“Investigation is ongoing,” he said.
