Watch Ex-banker, wife, mother-in-law gets 60 years jail term for stealing ₦21 million



 A former bank cashier, Ebenezer Adeolu Alonge alongside his wife, Isakunle Olamide Oyinlola and his mother-in- law, Isakunle Eunice Moradeke were on Friday, July 23, 2021 convicted and sentenced to Sixty (60) years imprisonment by Justice Adekanye Ogunmoye of Ekiti State  High Court for stealing depositors’ funds.

According to the petitioner, on February 15, 2017, a customer lodged the said sum into her account but the transaction could not be traced in the customer’s account even after the customer presented a copy of the slip signed by Alonge.

In the course of the investigation, the said transaction was allegedly traced to Ebenezer Alonge’s wife’s account. Further investigation, however, revealed that there was a turnover of over ₦21 million as a deposit from other customers in his wife’s account.

Also, it was alleged that other sums were traced to his mother-in-law’s account, who was also a beneficiary of the fraudulent act.

EFCC, in the course of trial, called two witnesses and tendered several exhibits to prove their case. 

The convicts were found guilty on all twelve (12) count charges and sentenced to five (5) years on each count. The cumulative sixty years prison terms will, however, run concurrently.
