Kola Al-Amin, a 
former staff of the

bank 
(name withheld) 
with a Local 

Purchasing Order 
(LPO) for the 
supply 
of internet 
hardware 

which he 

claimed was

 from JAMB 
headquarters, 
Abuja.


He requested the 
microfinance 

bank to 

advance him a 
loan of

 N10 million 

only to finance the 
LPO.
The petitioner 
further alleged 

that 
Mr Al-Amin 

was granted 

the loan 
with the 
agreement 
that the proceeds 
of 
the LPO from 
JAMB 

will be paid 
directly into

 his account 
with the 
microfinance 
bank. 

but 

that at maturity 
time for 
repayment, 

he allegedly 
disappeared and
 on 
verification of 

the LPO in 

JAMB 

headquarters, 
Abuja, it was 
discovered that 

the 
LPO provided 
by the suspect was 
forged and that he 
was no longer 

a staff of the 
organisation.

Additional 
investigation 

revealed that the 
suspect has been 

involved in several 
other fraudulent 
deals under the 
same guise of being 

a JAMB official.

He will be charged 
to court upon 

conclusion of 
investigations.
