MC Oluomo replies NURTW’s query

Published

on

Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, Lagos State chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), has responded to a query issued to him by the national headquarters for alleged insubordination.

In a letter, Akinsanya stated that he faithfully complied with the laws guiding the union’s operations, adding that he would “never do anything to tarnish the image of the union or bring the union back to the inglorious position of being branded as thugs and disturbers of the public peace in Lagos.”

On the appointment of Alhaji Azeez Abiola as chairman, Lagos State NURTW Tricycle Operators, Akinsanya said Abiola was announced on February 9 in Abuja as one of the State Trustees and Chairman, Zone ‘C’ Tricycle Owners and Operators Association of Nigeria (TOOAN) of NURTW and not overall chairman of TOOAN in the state.

“But unfortunately, before we got back to Lagos, Abiola had been parading himself on social media as the new state chairman of TOOAN and posting a letter of appointment I was not aware to that effect.

“This is in spite of the fact that the legality of TOOAN is an issue at the National Industrial Court and the Lagos State Council is presently funding the defense in an effort to protect the corporate image of the union,” he said.

Akinsanya denied knowledge of intimidation or assault on Abiola or any of his supporters.

As a trustee, Abiola, he said, has the right of entry to the state secretariat and has never been denied the right.

Akinsanya said: “It will be demeaning of me to instruct people to beat up his supporters and I never did.  On the release of former state secretariat to Abiola, Mr President (Alhaji Tajudeen Baruwa), will recall that the former State Secretariat situated on 360, Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, Abule-Egba, Lagos has already been contracted to the Amalgamated Mega-City Transport Limited for the use of the BRT operations and they have taken over the place since and are paying us rent. Income from the venture is routinely sent to the National Headquarters. There is, therefore, no former State Secretariat to hand over as same is contractually obligated to the transport firm to his (Abiola’s) knowledge and all our knowledge.”

On allegation of using thugs to forcefully take over branches of his perceived enemies, Akinsanya said nothing of such ever happened since he took over.

‘Chiamaka Agim May have revealed her PIN’- IT Specialist Shola Akinwale

Published

on

 

Over the week, one Miss Chiamaka Agim went viral on social media, calling out Zenith Bank after a fraudulent unauthorized transfer was carried out from her account where a tune of four million Naira was siphoned on the 9th of January 2023. In other to sway public sympathy, Chiamaka resorted to all kinds of threats saying she will commit suicide if her money is not returned to her account. After recounting her experience on how the incident occurred via her post on social media, Shola Akinwale, a time-tested Information Technology personality and former bank employee, took interest in the case and launched a private investigation into what might her transpired leading to an unauthorized transfer.

After his private investigation, Shola found out that the said amount could not have left Chiamaka’s account without authorization via a token which must have been sent to her mobile phone. He further stated that; her card pin, expiry date and other information on it might have been compromised. Maybe her phone must have been stolen for the person who carried out the fraud to have successfully transferred the money into another account. “The theft was a coordinated one I must tell you. She must have revealed her information to a close ally who carried out the transaction, or she is not saying the truth about what happened to either her ATM card or her mobile phone. She might have revealed some information to those close to her who carried out such theft. On the other hand, her card might have been compromised maybe she had fallen victim to some fraudulent POS operator who has cloned her card. From my investigation, I gathered that it’s not her first time using such means to transfer money using an e-token. No one can authorize the transfer without her access to the mobile phone where the token was or One Time Password OTP must have been inserted to complete the transaction. The funny aspect is that the money was transferred three times into a different account. It means the e-token was generated three times. So something is wrong somewhere.

According to section 3,4,6, Cardholders users of CBN guidelines on the operation of electronic payment channels in Nigeria issued in June 2020A card holder/ user shall;

Protect the Payment card, mobile device and pin with due care.
Notify the issuer immediately the pin is compromised.

iii. notify the issuer immediately about stolen, damaged, lost or destroyed cards and mobile phones.

 

Section 3.4.6.5 stated further that; The cardholder shall be held liable for fraud committed with his card arising from the misuse of his pin or debit card.”

 

Zenith Bank is not at fault. The fault is coming from Chiamaka who was careless with her information or her phone. It’s nearly possible for such a huge amount to move without authorization from the owner of the account. So Chiamaka should think deeply and get anyone who might be a suspect around her. She did not guard her information jealously”

 

 

 

On the other hand, sympathizers on social media have also called on Zenith bank to make their investigation and reveal what really happened in the said fraud. Zenith bank quickly swung into action by calling for an in-house investigation. According to an internal memo on the investigation carried out by the bank, it was recorded that; Chiamaka authorized the transfer. She authorized a transfer of 3,715,000, 222,900 and 102,000 via an e-token assigned with serial numbers to the transfers to various accounts in different banks. From investigation, it was gathered that she used the e-token to change the authentication mode from token to Mobile pin on the 21st of November 2021. The Information was also used to enrol a Zenith Bank Mobile Banking app on the 6th of December 2021 on an iPhone 11 pro-Max at exactly 11:25.06 pm. It was gathered that she had authorized many transactions with the E-token and four-digit pin using the mobile app severally and she never complained of any lagging from the bank before the said disputed transaction was carried out. “The transaction was consummated by the device iPhone 11 pro-Max on the 9th of January 2023. If you claim the transaction was not authorized by you is true. It means someone had unrestricted access to your device.’ It was further gathered that when she reported the incident, the e-token was disabled and the fraudulent transfer was escalated to the beneficiary bank which is UBA and Access Bank. UBA claimed the beneficiary account from their end had a good profile and does not depict fraud while Access Bank was able to salvage 800 thousand from the beneficiary account as they await a court order to be able to repatriate the salvaged funds back to Chiamaka’s account.

 

It was also stated in the investigation that; Chiamaka did not immediately block the account on noticing the fraudulent transfer by using the emergency *966*911#code to block other unauthorized transfers. She also did not call the open 24 hours daily call centre for help. If she had done that, they would have taken swift action by reversing the transaction but she didn’t reach out to the bank for such assistance.
