Wema Bank MD Ademola Adebise Swims In An Alleged N1billion Money Laundering


It seems the ability to commit fraud is one of the criteria a candidate must have to be qualified to become a Managing Director at WEMA Bank. if it would be recollected one of the bank’s former MD Mr. Adebisi Omoyeni, by the Police Special Fraud Unit (SFU) in 2008 over issues that has to do with N450 million fraud. In the same vein Mr. Ademola Adebise, the current MD of the bank is allegedly indicted for using the customer’s account to lauder over N1 Billion.

It was gathered that Ademola Adebise and other members of his staff involved in the N1 billion money laundering scandal are now cooling their feet in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission – EFCC.

This online news medium understands that the financial institution which was recently indicted in an alleged money laundering case involving Dana Air is currently facing a fresh fraud case with its Managing Director (MD), Ademola Adebise allegedly in the forefront of the allegation.

At a time when the government of President Muhammadu Buhari is fighting corruption headlong and committing to the extradition of the 80-man list of wire fraudsters released by the FBI, Adebise and some of his top management staffs have been alleged of leading a money-laundering ring.

The current case could be likened to a scene from a mafia movie, as Adebise is said to have allegedly threw all caution to the wind in a fraud allegedly estimated to be in the tune of N1bn.

Reports in the media detailed how the Wema Bank MD smartly laundered the said amount using the account of an innocent customer without his consent.

The scam as it has been widely reported is part of a grand plan to dispose of the owners of popular hospitality and entertainment facility located in Maryland which is currently under the receivership of Kunle Ogunba (SAN) and the subject of litigation.

We learned in a report, that “a man who hardly could deposit N300,000.00 in his account was suddenly credited a sum of 1Billion Naira without an alert or any form of notice”.
