By Dipo Olowookere

A former employee of Skye Bank Plc has been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The banker identified as Mrs Omosalewa Ayinla was said to have been involved in a treasury bills fraud worth N27 million.

According to the EFCC, the fugitive “allegedly forged treasury bills certificates worth N27 million and handed them over to a customer in exchange for the sum.”

The woman is now being wanted by the anti-graft agency in a case of conspiracy, forgery and obtaining money under false pretences.

It was disclosed that “efforts to execute a duly signed Warrant of Arrest obtained from the Magistrate Court 1, Iyaganku, Oyo State have so far proved abortive.”

The anti-money laundering agency disclosed on its website and Facebook page that, “The suspect is at large while efforts to apprehend her have been futile.”

Her last known address, according to the EFCC, is No 7, Prince/Princess Elesin Meta Estate, Apata, Ibadan, Oyo State.

Mrs Ayinla is said to be a native of Ijebu North Local Government Area in Ogun State.

Also, the 38-year-old former banker is dark complexioned and of an average height, who speaks Yoruba and English Languages fluently.
