Nwakoby Kills Himself In front Of
His Pastor In Lekki Lagos Over
N350Million Debt. Mr. Olisa
Nwakoby, a manager at a
second generation bank, First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Plc
on Friday evening shot himself
dead in the presence of his Priest
at the Lekki area of Lagos Island,
Lagos State.
The father of a 10-year- old daughter was said to have taken
his own life because of an
incriminating huge loan
transaction he approved in his
Sources close to the family told ST at the weekend that the late
Olisa was the approving officer
for the loan which the
beneficiary is no longer servicing
and the bank was on the neck of
Olisa to get the money back. His late father, Chief Patrick
Oguejiofor Nwakoby was a
former chairman of First Bank of
Niger Plc, a successfully lawyer ,
politician and a highly respected
community leader before his death.
Fear over his integrity and the
name of his family, which could
be dented if his bank
commences action against him
over the loan, was too much for the vibrant banker to bear
prompting him to shoot himself,
our source said.
Our source did not say that there
was suspicion of any foul play in
the death of the banker, she also could not confirm the actual
amount involved in the
transaction, but she simply said
“it was huge.” The case is being
handled by homicide detectives
attached to Area J Command, Lekki/Ajah. According to a
police source.
The banks, on the fateful day he
killed himself, went to meet his
pastor. He told the pastor to tell
his wife to take good care of his children, that what he would do
in next few minutes would
shock everyone. He was said to
have later blown his brains out.
The source continued, “It was
later discovered that he took money from the bank,
N350million, and the money
started creating problems for
him. He killed himself.”
When the Lagos State Police
spokesperson, Dolapo Badmus, was contacted, her two lines
were switched off. Olisa hails
from Nkwelle Ezunaka in Oyi
Local Government of Anambra
State and he attended Abia State
University, where he bagged a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree,
in Microbiology between 1990
and 1995.
