Customer sues Diamond Bank N25 Million for tampering with his Account

According to YES! Weekly Magazine Another
multi-million naira fraud has allegedly been
uncovered at Diamond Bank Plc by one of
their customers. Embittered by this
development, the said customer, Mr.
Oluwamayowa Iseyemi, has reported the
matter to the Osogbo High Court in Osun
State. In his word, the bank tampered with
his account without his 'knowledge, consent
and authority'.
For that reason, he's claiming N25 million as
special and general damages. According to
his writ of summons, he had been enjoying
credit facilities from the Osogbo branch of the
bank since 2008. In February 2009 however,
he applied for a personal loan of N3 million –
which was granted on February 23 via a
letter with reference number FD/AO/
AA/23/02/2009.
"The loan was repayable in two equal
monthly installments with an interest of 25
percent per annum and management fee of
two percent flat per quarter in outstanding
facility amount payable upfront".
Unfortunately, according to Iseyemi, the bank
went contrary to their agreement along the
line, tampering with his account in the
process.
Maintaining that he had started re-paying the
loan when sometime in 2011 he "uncovered
a lot of manipulations by the defendant in his
account", he has now rushed to the court to
seek redress. The matter came up for hearing
recently and from what we were told, more
shocking revelations will still follow. Diamond
Bank Plc is one of Nigeria's leading banks.
Headed by Dr. Alex Otti, a first class
graduate of the University of Port-Harcourt,
banker/customer palaver is not new to them.
