Diamond Bank Plc seem to be in the eye of the storm aplenty this days. It's either staff members are alleging one thing or the other or there are cases of fraud. The latest is a case of alleged fraud against the bank by one of it's customers.
A Mr. Oluwamayowa Iseyemi has already instituted a case of fraud against the bank at the Osogbo High Court in Osun State. His case is centered on the allegation that Diamond Bank tampered with his account with his knowledge, consent and authority.
And what the man wants for damages is a cool #25million Naira. Mr. Iseyemi has had a relationship with the bank through the branch in Osogbo, Osun State since 2008. In 2009 he applied for and got a loan of #3million Naira. The terms of the repayment agreement stipulated a 2 equal monthly installment payment plus 25% par annum interest and includes a management fee of 2% flat per quarter in outstanding facility amount payable upfront”. But midway through their agreement, the bank breached the contract with him and tampered with his account.
Mr. Iseyemi alleges that he had already started repayment of the loan before the alleged infringements. Case is still in court as we speak and more unpalatable revelations are upcoming.
