Published

on

Do not be deceived by the new commercial which Diamond Bank is currently running about picking another bank if your bank does not care about your business.
Also, do not be fooled by their Public Relations gimmick which features comedian Bovi Ugboma, as it is just another avenue to draw more people into an already big net of scam.

Presently, the talk in town is about another multi-million naira fraud which has allegedly been uncovered at Diamond Bank Plc by one of their customers.

Embittered by this development, the said customer, Mr. Oluwamayowa Iseyemi, has gone to court to seek justice, as the matter presently sit in a High Court in Osogbo, Osun State. Information available to www.theoctopusnews.com has it that the customer of the bank is alleging that they tampered with his account without his ‘knowledge, consent and authority’.

For that reason, he’s claiming N25 million as special and general damages. According to his writ of summons, he had been enjoying credit facilities from the Osogbo branch of the bank since 2008. In February 2009 however, he applied for a personal loan of N3 million naira which was granted on February 23 via a letter with reference number FD/AO/AA/23/02/2009.

“The loan was repayable in two equal monthly instalments with an interest of 25 percent per annum and management fee of two percent flat per quarter in outstanding facility amount payable upfront”.

According to Iseyemi, the bank went contrary to their agreement along the line, tampering with his account in the process.

Maintaining that he had started re-paying the loan when sometime in 2011 he “uncovered a lot of manipulation by the defendant in his account”, he has now rushed to the court to seek redress. The matter came up for hearing recently and from what we were told, more shocking revelations will still follow. Diamond Bank Plc is one of Nigeria’s leading banks. Headed by Dr. Alex Otti, a first class graduate of the University of Port-Harcourt. This is not the first time a customer will be dragging the bank to court, as the name Diamond Bank now seem synonymous to fraud.

Through the UBA Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of the United Bank for Africa Plc (UBA), Elumelu has championed the construction of a state-of-the-art multipurpose information technology building, which will benefit the  students of Ambrose Alli University in Ekpoma, Edo State. The hall, to be named The Tony O. Elumelu multipurpose hall, is furnished with computers, desks and chairs, measures 839 square meters and has adjoining offices and conveniences.

 

Elumelu highlighted his motivation: “Education is crucial to Nigeria’s human capital – whether our young people join our national institutions, the private sector or, as I did, take the entrepreneurial path, no one can afford to be cut off from the digital world. It has been a personal mission to ensure that the hall was delivered to specification, for the benefit of the students at the AAU. Success brings with it the duty to give back, and I am just grateful that I am now in a position to meaningfully help the next generation”.

 

The multipurpose hall was formally handed over to the University, at a ceremony attended by members of the University’s governing council and staff, led by Vice-Chancellor, Prof Ignatius Onimawo.

 

Speaking at the commissioning, UBA’s Directorate Head, South Bank, Mr. Chris Ofikulu, who represented the UBA Group Chairman, highlighted the contribution of UBA, through its Foundation, to education and development across Africa.

 

‘As a pan-African bank, operating in 20 countries across our continent, UBA is committed to being a socially responsible institution, and a role model for businesses in Africa. The UBA Foundation actively promotes the socio-economic improvement of the communities in which UBA operates, with a particular emphasis on development in the areas of “Education, Environment, and Economic Empowerment”. We believe in intervening and building capacity within communities, facilitating projects that will act as catalysts for social and economic development’ he stated.

 

“Tony Elumelu is a product of this great university and is conscious of the need to give back and there is no substitute for world class educational infrastructure, and this is what has informed the construction of these facilities, that will help equip the future leaders of our great nation Nigeria.” he said.

 

The AAU Vice Chancellor, Prof Ignatius Onimawo, who expressed his heartfelt gratitude towards the gesture by the UBA Group Chairman, noted that one of the most pressing needs of the University for 2020 had been met, and thanked UBA and Mr Elumelu.

 

He challenged students to make proper use of the facilities provided by UBA, and to ensure that they emerge great leaders and mentors like Elumelu, whose commitment to catalysing entrepreneurial growth across Africa, through the Tony Elumelu Foundation, and institutionalising African philanthropy, had created a strongly positive role model. ‘We at Ambrose Ali university are so proud of our son Tony Elumelu and every time we see him doing good across Africa, we feel joy and accomplishment’ said Onimawo.
