A twenty nine year old cleaner, PETER OKO, has narrated how he stole five point six million naira from the New Nyanya, Abuja branch of Diamond Bank, where he worked.
The cleaner stated that he took the keys to the vault, stole the money and hid it in a carton, which he took home after the close of work.
The money was however recovered by the police, which has now charged the suspect to court.
PETER OKO told News men at the Nasarawa State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department in Lafia that he carried out the theft alone, saying and I quote “As a cleaner, I knew where all the keys were kept.” End of quote.
He added that he had been working in the bank for the past 10years and single-handedly carried out the operation, adding that he stole the money without the knowledge of the bank workers, as that he had access to all the foreign currencies in the bank and knew where they were kept.
PETER OKO blamed the economic situation for his action, stating that he had never been involved in a criminal act before now.
