A staff of AIICO Insurance Company, Cyril Bassey, has been arrested in Lagos for allegedly swindling a client N1m under the false pretence of opening a saving policy scheme for two years.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the incident happened at Jemtok Street, Ago area of Okota, Lagos, where Bassey accosted the victim, Justice Nwosu and obtained the money.
According to Police sources, the suspect approached the victim and introduced himself as a staff of AIICO. He then convinced the victim to open the policy scheme with the assurance that after two years, he would receive his money back with certain amount as interest.
The victim was said to have opened the policy on 3rd February, 2020 and continued paying the money as they had agreed after filling the necessary documentations on the policy.
However, when the victim wanted to take back his money with the promised interest and went to AIICO office, he received the shock of his life.
The management told him there were no records of his payments and he should look for Bassey to collect his money despite the fact that the company was said to have admitted that Bassey was their staff.
