Diamond Bank Cleaner Confesses To Theft Of N5.675m From Bank

A cleaner, Peter Oko, has narrated how he stole N5.675 million from the New Nyanya branch of Diamond Bank, where he worked.


The 29 year-old 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 said that the suspect had been charged to court.

Oko told Northern City News at the Nasarawa State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department in Lafia that he carried out the theft alone, saying, “As a cleaner, I knew where all the keys were kept.”

He added, “I single-handedly carried out the operation because I have been working as a cleaner in the bank for the past 10 years and my eyes had been on one of the keys to the vault, where the bank used to keep all its money.

“As a cleaner, my attention was not only on the keys, but on how I will carry out the operation successfully without being caught by either the security or any staff of the bank.”

The suspect said he stole the money without the knowledge of the bank workers, adding that he had access to all the foreign currencies in the bank as he knew where they were kept.

“As a cleaner, I knew where all the secret files were kept and where the bank kept its keys where you can have access to dollars, Nigerian currency and all other currencies.”

Oko blamed the economic situation for his action, stating that he had never been involved in a criminal act before now.

“The devil of economy recession pushed me into the crime; I have never committed a criminal act before, luck ran out on me and I was caught in the process,” he stated.

The state Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Bello, said the crime was reported to the police in October, 2016, by the bank, adding that the matter was then transferred from Karu Divisional Police Headquarters to the SCIID for investigations.

    3. Stop wishing or accepting wrong. A thief is a thief whatever the circumstance. If someone staying with you steals a large amount of money from your house and runs,wont you want him to be caught? I worked in diamond bank and was one of the people that they sacked months back. But I will still not support a thief that steals from them or anyone else.
      Most of these people are caught. The cctv works. One cleaner stole a mopol guys phone when i was there. They watched d cctv and caught him.
      Some cleaners come to a place and end up climbing up the ladder with continuous development and education. Staff help them when they see their seriousness and diligence.They become core staff. But some remain cleaners for years and many steal.
      Pls do not support criminal behaviour. He is not the only one in the recession. And am sure you guys hadassah,atheist, sucre...do not steal or consider it.

    4. If he wasn't caught someone else will pay 4 d crime dy didn't commit. The branch manager may be your relation or someone you know. Hope u will still be happy he wasn't caught. May we never fall victim of being held 4 a crime we didn't commit.

    5. He shouldn't have be caught....so that the innocent bank employees in charge of the vault would have to pay from their pockets....your comment isn't fair.

    6. He was caught on his way out in the morning.he hid in a toilet the night before. He was able to steal a set of the vault keys belonging to a staff. He couldn't access the vault fully, so he wasn't able to take a lot of cash. He put the money in a carton and tried to leave with it in the morning but the security man didn't let him pass. If he had gotten away with it, all the staff would have been arrested and detained. My sister works there so she told me everything that happened. I still believe that he had some kind of help from inside.

    1. Exactly, what about the code?

    2. The man said he had been paying attention to the details of the vault. So it's possible he saw the bank staff enter the combination to the vault. It's easy for one who has been working there for so long.

  13. That is one careless branch.
    The rate at which people blame the devil and recession when caught doing evil though.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The Bank staff are careless, how can a cleaner get to the Vault. Even if he knows where all the keys are kept, the Vault is under surveillance throughout the close of work, I worked in Bank for good 4 years now.

  17. His version of the story is rubbish, possibly to protect his accomplices. First of all, he couldn't have opened the vault with "one of the keys" that he monitored. U need two keys to open a bank's vault. This story get as e be.

  32. Always their first time when they are caught

  33. Eroni o. I doubt this story. Vault always have a combination key which cannot be handled by one person. So if eventually he had access to one key, how can he obtain the combination from the second key holder. And bank policy is that vault key holders must go home with the key, on no account should vault key be kept within the bank premises over night. have a good day people. Mondays are always hectic.

  34. Chai this cleaner na mumu ooo. Why you allow them to catch you. Chai

  35. What kind of mumu story is this.
    A vault always has a code. Do you think it is one cage with a kasali in front? So he packed 5 million inside carton abi? And carried outside the bank or did film trick and vanished into smoke? How did he get the code. What will a cleaner be doing at night in the bank? Was he cleaning the money?
    Mumu story.
