A female staffer with an old generation bank located along Airport road
in Benin City who was apprehended over allegation of swindling a wife of
an aide to Governor Adams Oshiomhole of N15million on Monday was said
to have blamed her ordeal on “spiritual attack”.

victim whose husband is the special adviser on security to Governor
Oshiomhole to pay about Fifteen million naira in fix deposit.
A police source said the female banker, who will soon be arraigned, was
said to have confessed to the crime and pleaded to be pardoned just as
she blamed her present predicament on a spiritual affliction.
Trouble was said to have started for the suspect when she approached the
victim, Mrs Mikano Kadiri, to fix the said money in a deposit account
where she can enjoy some profit on a monthly basis.
She also confirmed to Mrs Kadiri that on request, the money could be
withdrawn. The lid was said to be been blown off the suspect when Mrs
Kadiri requested to have access to the money and she was told that the
money had been lent to the bank’s cooperative, a development which arose
On investigation, it was discovered that the bank did not run a
cooperative society and the money could not be traced. It was learnt
that the said Glory wrote a letter of resignation to the bank which was
revealed to the victims.
But if her claims of “evil spirit” is true then she also need help.
