Though, our investigation further revealed that he, (Ibeneme) has owned up to the crime and previously undertook to pay back the said amount, but has remained adamant, hence enjoying gov Obiano’s protection.
We gathered also that conscious efforts were made to reach the governor including a message sent to him via email but he is yet to reply a situation Ibeneme who initially agreed to pay the money he sold Nnagozie late father’s shares has so far made a U-turn.
According to our impeccable source, Ibeneme committed the crime while he was a staff of UBA where he opened the account himself using Nnagozie late father’s name and pressed his passport on the mandate card and liquidated the Shares without permission from Nnagozie, the next of kin.
Moreover, when corereporter.wordpress.com put a call across to him (Ibenem) he said, it was not in his character to behave in that manner, but that he was tricked into the act and promised restitution, while insisting that the case was in court.
