EFCC arraigns petrol station MD, First Bank staff for N900m POS fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday, arraigned Naankang Dawan, his companies – Taen Nigeria Ltd and Lataen Engineering Ltd – alongside Moruf Tunji Olukanmi before Justice D. V Agishi of the Federal High Court, Jos, Plateau.

They face a 31-count charge bordering on conspiracy, money laundering and obtaining more than N908million by false pretence.

Naankang Dawan (first defendant), who inherited companies including a petrol station from his family, allegedly connived with some staff of First Bank, including Olukanmi (fourth defendant), to defraud customers using a Point of Sale (POS) terminal allocated to him.
