7 Billion Naira Found In CBN Director’s Bank Account; Olakanmi Gbadamosi Under Watch

7 billion cbn director account

Sept 16, 2014 – 7 Billion Naira Found In Central Bank Of Nigeria, CBN Director’s Bank Account; Olakanmi Gbadamosi Under Investigation

A shocking discovery that sent cold shivers down the spines of the top echelon of the Central Bank of Nigeria occurred last week when a group of special investigators combing the books of the apex bank stumbled on a mind boggling N7billion in one of the accounts of one of it’s directors, Mr Olakanmi Gbadamosi, the Director of Trade and Exchange Department.

Mr Gbadamosi is said to be one of the most ‘reliable’ associates of the former governor of CBN, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, who he worked closely with as the Director of Procurement until new Governor, Godwin Emefiele got into office.
Mr Isiaka Olakanmi Gbadamosi who is said to be from Ibadan, Oyo State is reported to be one of those being investigated in the aftermath of the Sanusi years as the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Sources revealed that in recent times, there have been several allegations flying around on the probability of an existing account in the apex bank from which the activities of some notorious sects and organisations are being funded.
Though nothing is confirmed or denied yet on this issue, the latest development we gathered has given the Federal Government and the new Governor the required impetus to dig further.

Our source revealed that Mr Gbadamosi was caught unaware in the web of this investigations as he was only recently moved along with six directors in a major shake up ordered by Mr Godwin Emefiele, this move was made on June 23, along with the rearrangement of the portfolios of his deputies.

The investigations, we gathered, was very discreet and if the preliminary reports are anything to go by, Mr Gbadamosi might soon be summoned to explain how he came about this huge figure in his account.

“Even if the man had never touched a kobo from his salaries and allowances since he came on board in CBN in October 1999, he will find it extremely difficult to explain this figure. N7B is not the kind of money small boys play around with, we believe this is not even the end of the matter” a dependable source told us last week.
Sources disclosed that this is one story that is being guided carefully until a final report is arrived at.
“We won’t want an innocent man crucified, so we are being careful, the man is still innocent until otherwise proven,” this was a response we got from a source in the bank, who pleaded anonymity.

    What is NOT clear remains unclear until clarified. Nigerian politicians are renowned to open up matters like this never to do whats right but to use as weapons against others that arent at par with them.

    First, the post clearly says “Though nothing is confirmed or denied yet on this issue, the latest development we gathered has given the Federal Government and the new Governor the required impetus to dig further”. Therefore i beseech Nigerians and even the press to quietly observe the matter while the so called “digging-further” happens.

    Second, as much as i think everyone reading this post will like to see the end of it, something tells me that this is another political stunt and for this reason im beginning to feel funny about the story.

    Fingers crossed as we await the “digging further”

    A fact remains, Nigeria is a corrupt nation but not all individuals are corrupt.
    A story comes online with out a concrete source who is pleading animosity should be
    Investigated better. What if this a tussle by elements wishing to pull down the man? The story
    Should be investigated and the apex bank should be the one to come out to declare the facts .
    Something not so right with this story and before an innocent man is crucified lets all hold on a minute and think
    What is the real reason behind every publication by a newspapers fighting to be recognized by all means…..

    In as much as i dont support corruption or support GEJ. But i strongly believe there is more to this matter.

    first, whoever that comes about this should have giving out d details of d bank keeping the said money. or better still invite EFCC. ICPC or other agents to investigate the matter before bringing it up in public.

    Till today, with all accusation pointed at ODUAH while at Aviationa and Diezeani , nobody could come out with clear evidence that could proof them quilty as accused.

    Before damaging the man involved integrity, people should find out the truth of he facts they are feeding public with plz. even bible in all things find the truth and the truth shall set thee free.

    people are commenting of funding BH with the funds.

    Now people will start dragging GEJ into the matter that they are working for him.

    Proper investigation should be carry out before nailing innocent man. does it occur to us that the said account could be open in his name with same people that may be envious or interested in the man job.

    If you are truly fighting corruption why not publish the account details for all nigerian’s to see, if not keep your mouth shut.

    The story is as shocking as told but how far has the story helped us as Nigerians who are desirous of sanitising the polity from corrupt public officials? How reliable is it? why would the author not disclose the account details and the bank where the money is kept, why would the author not disclose the names of his informant? As for me i believe and work with hard core evidence, i dont pity anyone who is made to dance to the music of his misdeeds but God will not forgive anyone through whom an innocent is punished. If the author of the story claims that ”the story is being guided carefully untill a final report is arrived at” why blowing the lid now? Honestly, blowing the lid now is premature and gives me an impression that the author was either playing out somebody’s script to malign the man or blew up the lid to assist the man to cover up his tract if indeed the allegation is true. In civilised nations, this type of publication will not come out untill investigation is fully concluded. God help Nigeria

    Haba! this is politics and a fabricated story probably cooked up in a beer parlour because finding had revealed that the office given by the magazine as his operational office was an uncompleted building.

    the Nigerian press council and the NUJ should kindly do an independent investigation about these faceless and sponsored writer so as not to give journalism profession a bad name before the public.

    Still on the alleged 7 billion naira discovered by unnamed investigative team in the personal account of a director in the CBN, I wish to challenge the management of the magazine to provide the public with the name of the name of the bank and his account number for verification, without this no right thinking individual will believe the story.

    I also call on the SSS, EFCC and the police to immediately invite the writer for questioning for them to be able to trace the account for verification and where the writer fail to do so, he should be prosecuted so as to put an end to all these rubbish, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

    “We won’t want an innocent man crucified, so we are being careful, the man is still innocent until otherwise proven,” this was a response we got from a source in the bank, who pleaded anonymity”

    Good story but it just sounds too political… Clear the air first before you taint the name of a person (peradventure proven otherwise).

    Nigerians are tired of half-baked stories. Even if the money was in governments hand, we Nigerians wont know or see what it will be used for anyways.

    It is ridiculous to read the post making the rounds about a purported N7Billion found in the bank account of a Director of the Central Bank of Nigeria. Firstly, the story originated from a soft-sell magazine, First Weekly of September 14-20, 2014 edition, the story, shocking as it is told, calls for several questions; why would the writer not disclose the account details and bank where the said amount is kept or disclose the names of their informant, where was the money in his account stolen from?

    To ensure fairness, we dispatched our team to reach the address of the publishers as stated on the cover of the magazine for further information and we were shocked at their discoveries. Below are pictures of the address.

    From the pictures above one can easily conclude that the perpetrators of the story might be playing out a script of some sponsors who may have fallen apart with the Director or want to tarnish his imagine to take over his seat or settle old scores or extort money as it is the case with these group of faceless journalists. The assumptions will continue to be endless for no one knows the true motive of the writers.

    All our efforts to get to the publishers and other groups in the company using the numbers provided on the magazine proved abortive as none of the numbers could be reached and our text messages were also not replied. The one room apartment in the building has also been vacated.

    We need to stand up against such slander and malicious reports because today is this poor Director who knows who it will be tomorrow
