After over one week on the run, the Managing Director of Access Bank Nigeria Plc has been arrested.
Herbert Wigwe was picked up at the Marina Lagos Branch of Access Bank Nigeria Plc this evening after some gun-toting EFCC operatives stormed the bank.
Staff of the popular financial institution were said to have scampered for safety due to the determination of the EFCC officials to bring Herbert Wigwe out of his hiding.
A witness said Wigwe was caught hiding in one of the storage room at the bank this evening after EFCC traced $5 million from Diezani’s $115million bribe to Access Bank.
The $5million bribe was routed through Zenith Bank.
Herbert Wigwe is currently facing money laundering investigations.
