“He withdrew N 640,000, leaving the victim with nothing in his account

“The frustrated victim reported the matter to the police command who promptly got into action and arrested the culprit.

“He is currently helping the police in investigation and shall soon appear in court.

“The Commissioner of Police, Eboka Friday, admonishes the good people of Rivers State to be wary of strangers at ATM galleries and desist from seeking their assistance.

“They should rather approach staff of the banks who can easily be identified should anything go wrong.”
