“My name is Adetunji Adesina, I am from Oshogbi in Osun State, I met Aghama at the ATM machine of the bank (name withheld) in Sapele Road, I behaved as if to say I wanted to use the ATM machine, then deliberately dropped my phone on the ground, in pity he wanted to help me with the phone.

“I punched the cardless button on the ATM machine. He was, unaware that I pressed the cardless button, so he thought his card was stuck in the machine and went to seek for help from bank workers. At that point, I removed it from the cardless transaction and removed his ATM card.

“I got his ATM pin number when I was pretending to help him, I later withdrew 678,000.00 from his account, using the ATM, and POS (Point of Sales) before I was arrested by the Police.”

Also speaking to newsmen, Aghama said he was surprised to see that N20,000 had already been withdrawn from his account after he went to the bank to make a complaint of his ATM card getting stuck in the machine. He also revealed that N600,000 which was paid into his account a week later by his brother who stays abroad, was withdrawn by the suspect as he did not block the ATM card.

Aghama was contacted by the police after they arrested the suspect during a night patrol.
