FCMB has found itself in another mess as Court jails one of its staff for stealing customers’ funds.


CityNews Nigeria reports that an employee of the First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Felix Diete, has been sentenced to four years’ imprisonment by Justice Jane Inyang of the Federal High Court in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, for stealing customers’ funds.


City News reliably gathered that three customers of FCMB had on September 2, 2016, complained that they gave Diete the sum of N6m to deposit in their accounts but the convict deposited the sum of N4m and converted the balance to his personal use.
