One of the eight bankers standing trial for alleged fraudulent activities totalling N8 billion cried uncontrollably yesterday, as her three children came into the courtroom of the Federal High Court to greet her.
The suspect, who had been in detention at Agodi Prisons, Ibadan, since the case instituted against them by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, began last week, was still in tears, even after the children had left.
Among the relatives was a physically-challenged woman on a wheel chair, who kept praying for one Deji, one of the suspects, that the ‘good’ he had done and scores of people he had shown kindness would see him through the case.Another fair-complexioned woman wept uncontrollably, raining curses on those who let the cat of the bag, saying “Deji, God would consider all your good gestures and help you out.
“The ancestors of all of us you have shown kindness in various ways would make you go scot free.”
Also, a man who followed our correspondent to the car, kept asking why should journalists give such attention to the case when there are several people in other sectors stealing billions without attracting any attention or publicity?
