Peter Okoye, a well-known Nigerian artist better known by his stage name Mr. P, has criticized some Nigerian banks for identity fraud.
Remember that online con artists have been exploiting Mr. P, a member of the Psquare pair, to defraud people by utilizing the name of the lottery program he administers.
The artist said on his Instagram page that scammers have been opening accounts in his name to defraud victims, adding that he is sick of them.
Peter is baffled that banks permitted accounts to be opened under his name without proper verification or documentation.
He suspects that this might be an inside job by the banks or some other sinister act, and he’s not letting them off the hook easily.
The father of two has made it clear he’s taking legal action for the damages caused.
He wrote, “Enough is enough!! It’s either it’s an inside job or otherwise! I have a name to protect here and save some of these innocent victims! So get ready for me and my legal team! How can @polarisbankltd allow someone to open an account in the name of “PETER OKOYE PSQUARE” and @myaccessbank you also allow someone open an account name “PETER OKOYE PSQUARE” without valid means of identification, no biometrics, no BVN, no verified address or even utility bill to correspond with the address of the account owner.”
“Now they are using my name to scam innocent people. I am suing this bank for damages and calling them out! One after the other. @officialefcc take not! Enough is enough.”
