The Police yesterday declared wanted 10 bankers over an alleged N125.1 million fraud scam.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the names and photographs of the suspects have been pasted on the notice board of the zone 2 Police Command in Onikan, Lagos.

The command’s spokesman, Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Gbenga Adeoye, told NAN in Lagos, that it was normal for the police to declare wanted anybody suspected of crime.

“It is normal for the police to declare wanted anybody who refused to make himself available after committing crimes such as fraud, jump bail or murder.

“When we declare anybody wanted, the photograph, names and contact address of the suspected fellow will be pasted in the police formation for easy identification of his or her arrest,” Adeoye said.

The suspects who are at large, were being investigated over alleged forgery and obtaining money by false pretence, he said.

A warrant of arrest has been duly obtained from a Magistrate’s Court in Lagos State against the suspected fraudsters.

NAN gathered that the suspects conspired with others to obtain financial facilities of N15, 055, 541; N10, 894, 478 and N24, 597, 628.
