A P&G employee was arrested by operatives from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission's Uyo Zonal office for allegedly embezzling over N20m (twenty million Naira) in company funds to gamble on sports.
The petitioner claimed that Eze used his position as the company's head of sales to supply customers with goods worth more than N20 million, which he then converted for personal use. According to the complaint, the suspect sold goods worth the stated amount and fraudulently collected money from various customers using his account rather than the company's account between March 2020 and January 2021.
Investigations revealed that the suspect has a severe gambling problem, as he spent over N4m on daily bets with almost nothing to show for it.
It's was also discovered that between July and December 2020,the suspect received over N18m from one of the company's major customers (name withheld) for goods, which were not fully delivered. According to the customer, she's still expecting the balance of goods worth over N18M.The suspect will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
