How a Robber disguised as a Diamond Bank Staff and stole N650k

A robber has made away with N650,000 belonging to bank customers in the Apapa-Warehouse branch of Diamond Bank in Lagos, after disguising as a bank staff. 
Below is the full story as shared by Nnamdi Ikeh-Akabogu...

I have a neighbour who sells foodstuffs. She travelled for the new year so she instructed a relation to pay in the money (130,000) into her Diamond bank account.

She was in the banking hall, with the money in her bag. While filling her teller, someone asked her if she was paying in and she said yes. She later joined the long pay-in queue.

After a moment, and with d queue practically not moving, a young man, dressed in corporate suit (all thought was the bank’s cashier) came close to her and in a low voice asked for people who were paying above N100,000.

About five people stepped out and he asked them to follow him a few meters away from the queue. They all thought he was the bank’s staff, out to offer help.

He collected all their money, the completed tellers and asked them to wait on the line, so he can go in and stamp their tellers...

And so the man left. They waited and waited endlessly, not knowing that he had long exited the bank, through the rear exit, with their over N650,000.00.

It was after the seemingly unending wait they decided to report the matter to the Manager, who had to come down, checked the CCTV footage and behold, the gentleman in suit, was neither the bank’s cashier nor even a staff.

The security guard said it was the third time such was happening in that same branch alone.

My fellow Nigerians, we must BEWARE of activities of fraudsters, particularly in banking halls.
- No be everybody wey wear suit inside banking hall dey work for the bank o.
