Uncovered! How Ex-Bank Of Industry MD Olukayode Pitan Was Arrested, Detained

On 19 October 2023, the presidency announced the appointment of Olasupo Olusi as the new managing director and chief executive officer of the Bank of Industry (BOI).

In that announcement, presidential spokesperson Ajuri Ngelale said Mr Olusi’s appointment followed the voluntary resignation of his predecessor, Olukayode Pitan.

Mr Pitan’s sudden departure surprised many clients of his bank and some players in the nation’s financial sector, especially given that his second term of five years only began on 27 May 2022. But because Mr Pitan’s exit happened at a time when President Bola Tinubu was busy ousting appointees put in place by his predecessor, some people speculated at the time that Mr Tinubu possibly requested the BOI CEO to voluntarily step down so he (President Tinubu) could put his own man in that position.

There was no official disclosure or media report of any other undercurrents that triggered Mr Pitan’s resignation.

But more than three months after that episode, PREMIUM TIMES can now, for the first time, report the circumstances that led to Mr Pitan’s departure from the nation’s oldest, largest and most successful development financing institution.

Our findings indicate that the drama culminating in the banker’s exit from the bank began suddenly and unfolded quickly. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had, around the period, received intelligence alleging mismanagement of public funds by the leadership of BOI, then led by Mr Pitan. After days of discreet investigations, EFCC operatives moved against Mr Pitan on 16 October 2023. That day, he was arrested in Lagos and flown to Abuja, where he was interrogated and detained.

The banker remained in detention until 18 October, when the anti-graft agency granted him administrative bail. The following day, 19 October, the presidency announced Mr Pitan was resigning and that he was being replaced by Mr Olusi, a former World Bank economist and development finance expert.

Neither the government nor Mr Pitan disclosed that some transactions during the banker’s leadership at the 60-year-old real sector lender were being scrutinised by the EFCC and that, on that account, he had either offered to resign or compelled to do so. In the press statement announcing his resignation and appointment of a replacement, Mr Pitan was not accused of any wrongdoing.

More than three months after Mr Pitan was released on bail, no charges have been brought against him, and the EFCC appears reluctant to disclose details of the financial matters for which he is being investigated. When contacted Tuesday, Dele Oyewale, the head of media and publicity at the anti-corruption agency, promised to run a check and revert to this reporter on the case status. He has yet to do so as of the time of filing this report. He also has yet to respond to subsequent calls and text messages sent to him.

However, those familiar with the matter said that while in detention, Mr Pitan was questioned over BOI’s handling of a $750 million loan the bank got in 2018 from foreign banks to support small and medium-sized businesses across the country.

The loan was arranged by the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) and sourced from a syndicate of 16 lenders, including Afreximbank itself, the ECOWAS Bank for Investment and Development, British Arab Commercial Bank Plc and four Nigerian banks based in the UK. The facility was granted at a single-digit interest rate for five to seven years.

The loan was arranged to enable the BOI to bridge the funding gap for MSMEs, estimated at N700 billion, Mr Pitan told journalists during Afreximbank’s 25th Anniversary and annual general meeting in Abuja in 2018. He also said the facility was meant for companies operating in the creative industry, manufacturing and gender-based businesses to help reduce the unemployment rate in the country and create wealth for small and medium-scale entrepreneurs. The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) guaranteed the loan, which was disbursed to beneficiaries through commercial banks.

]This publication learned that the EFCC is now scrutinising the handling and disbursement of the loan following allegations of sharp practices by some whistleblowers. The informants, our sources said, claimed that rather than promptly disburse the fund to beneficiaries, some BOI officials initially placed it in fixed deposit accounts and earned returns before passing it to the CBN on maturity.

Our sources said about 130 private accounts linked to the matter were being investigated. At the same time, Mr Pitan was also questioned about the source of a certain N211 million traced to his Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) account.

When PREMIUM TIMES contacted Mr Pitan this week, the banker declined to provide details of his encounter with the EFCC and the issues that led to his arrest and detention. He, however, denied any wrongdoing in handling the $750 million loan. “All foreign proceeds into BOI are transferred to CBN,” he said. “The proceeds of the $750 million were paid into CBN in full. CBN has repaid Afreximbank in full as the loan has expired.”

When asked to respond to concerns on the loan management under his watch, Mr Pitan said, “I want you to know I will never engage in the type of activities false information peddlers who don’t mean well for me and the bank are feeding you.”

In response to a question about a particular N211 million in his account, the top banker said he was “a senior member of staff and eligible to various facilities including mortgage loan etc.”

BOI’s Head of Corporate Communications, Hadiza Olaosebikan, declined to comment for this story when contacted by PREMIUM TIMES. “I’m sorry I can’t answer any questions,” she said by telephone.

However, an official of the bank, who asked not to be named because he is not a spokesperson for the organisation, told this reporter that the $750 million loan was not mishandled in any way. “What happened was that when Tinubu came, his people wanted to remove Pitan from office at all costs and put their own man there,” he said. “So they came up with that allegation and got the EFCC to harass Pitan out of office. The man was forced to resign which is unfortunate.”

But Mr Pitan said he was not forced to step down. “Mr Pitan resigned voluntarily from BOI,” he told this reporter. “His letter of resignation was accepted. The official communication from FGN confirmed that.”

The man Pitan Olukayode
Mr Pitan was appointed managing director of BOI in May 2017 by former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who acted as Nigeria’s president when then-President Muhammadu Buhari vacationed in the UK. Mr Buhari reappointed him in March 2022 to serve a second tenure of five years.

Mr Pitan is an ordained pastor at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), in charge of Region 51 (Tabernacle of David) of the church, headquartered in Ajah, Lagos.

During a banking career spanning over 30 years, he was an executive director at Unity Bank and an executive director at FSB International Bank Plc.

He was also chairperson of the Association of Nigerian Development Finance Institutions and the director representing West Africa on the Board of the Association of African Development Finance Institutions.

EFCC raids BUA’s Lagos over alleged Forex deals with CBN


Personnel of Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have besieged the BUA Group head office located at PC 32, Churchgate Street, Victoria Island, Lagos State.

EFCC - newsheadline247.com

According to reports, the search by the anti-graft operatives in BUA office is still ongoing as of the time of filing this report.

BUA Group is owned by billionaire businessman, Abdul Samad Rabiu.

It had been reported that the EFCC is probing the foreign exchange allocations made to about 52 companies, including BUA Plc and Dangote Plc, during the tenure of the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele


It was gathered that the EFCC had written to the companies directing them to supply documents supporting the allocation and utilization of foreign currencies to them in the last 10 years.

The EFCC letter to the companies is part of ongoing investigation into alleged preferential Forex allocations to individuals and organisation.

Investigators had in the past months accused the CBN of favouring and enriching some individuals and companies through non-transparent allocation of foreign exchange to them.


Tingo CEO, Dozy Mmobuosi Charged For Fraud In US

Nigerian fintech businessman, Odogwu Mmobuosi, also known as Dozy Mmobuosi, has been charged with criminal offenses by the United States.

In an indictment made public on Tuesday, Mmobuosi, 45, the former co-chief executive officer of Tingo Group, was accused of conspiracy, securities fraud, and falsifying records with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

According to the charge, Mmobuosi, was alleged to have falsely presented his Tingo mobile cellular business and Tingo foods agriculture business as profitable, generating hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue.

He was alleged to have sold both businesses to Tingo Group and Agri-Fintech Holdings, caused them to falsely portray the businesses as “cash-rich, revenue-generating companies,” and looted millions of dollars by misappropriating cash and selling stock at inflated prices.


Prosecutors allege that the scheme occurred from 2019 to 2023.

According to Reuters, Mmobuosi is said to be at large.

Mmobuosi temporarily stepped down as Tingo Group’s co-CEO on December 20, two days after the SEC filed civil charges accusing him of orchestrating a “staggering” fraud.

Mmobuosi allegedly stole at least $16 million from Tingo Group, according to the SEC.

The commission claimed that Mmobuosi attempted to purchase Sheffield United football club when it was in the lower Championship league, while purchasing luxury automobiles and embarking on private plane trips with the money.

The SEC complaint alleges that Tingo Mobile claims to provide mobile phones and associated services to farmers in Nigeria, while Tingo Foods is supposed to be a food processor. The lawsuit is titled U.S. v. Mmobuosi, and it will be heard in the Southern District of New York under case number 23-cr-00601.

Monumental theft uncovered! How Emefiele, Others stole billions, kept Nigeria’s funds in foreign banks

About N1.7 trillion spent on COVID-19 intervention management did not get to the right beneficiaries

The Special Investigator who is investigating the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Jim Obazee, has uncovered 593 bank accounts in the United States, United Kingdom, and China. These accounts were used by the CBN under the leadership of Godwin Emefiele to keep Nigerian funds without proper authorization from the Board and Investment Committee of the bank.

No fewer than 16 former government and CBN officials were alleged to have engaged in fraudulent use of ‘Ways and Means’ which stood at N26.627 trillion.

The former CBN Governor and others are to face trial following the revelation of the scandalous monumental theft that rocked the apex bank in the last one year.


Those implicated include former and serving top officials of the apex bank.

Also, a former influential aide of former President Muhammadu Buhari may be arraigned with Emefiele. In September 2022, the aide had allegedly told Emefiele to proceed with the naira redesign.

The printing of the new notes cost N61.5 bilion out of which N31.79 billion has been paid. There were indications that the aide also sold a “dummy” to the former president.

The investigator also discovered how billions of naira were allegedly stolen by Emefiele and other officials from the CBN’s accounts including a “fraudulent cash withdrawal of $6.23 million” – about N2.9 billion at the then official exchange rate of N461 to a dollar.

In the UK alone, the Special Investigator said his probe led him to 543.4 million Pounds kept by Emefiele in fixed deposit accounts. He also said Emefiele manipulated the Naira exchange rate and perpetrated fraud in the e-Naira project of the CBN.

Preliminary investigations into the activities of the CBN and related entities revealed many infractions, including the violation of the apex bank’s Act, alleged looting, diversion of funds and sidelining of the Board of Directors.

Other allegations were lack of presidential approval, extra budgetary spending, forgery, concealment, stealing, conspiracy and fraud.

Uncovering Unauthorised Investments

Some documents available to The Nation, based on the report by the Office of Special Investigator, gave insights into how the rot in the CBN was perpetrated.

The Special Investigator on CBN and Related Entities, Mr. Jim Obazee, was appointed in July, 2023.

He submitted an Interim Report on December 9, 2023.

Newsheadline247 understands that the final report was submitted to the President on the December 20. The investigations exposed what a source described as a “monumental scandal”

It was gathered that some documents contain some highlights of the first phase of the probe of accounts and operations of the CBN.

It was also discovered that Emefiele invested public money (billions of dollars) in 593 accounts in the United States, China and the United Kingdom without authorisation.

In the UK alone, Emefiele kept £543,482, 213 in fixed deposits without authorisation by the CBN Board and the Investment Committee.

Also, about N1.7 trillion spent on COVID 19 intervention management did not get to the right beneficiaries.

 “Ways and Means”

A major breakthrough in the probe of the CBN was the manipulation of “Ways and Means” by Emefiele and his team.

Investigations showed that the former CBN governor and those who worked with him could not produce evidence of “Ways and Means,” which now stands at N26.627trillion.

It was found out that there were instances of arbitrariness where there was no presidential approval, but billions of Naira were taken out from the nation’s Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF) account.

 Some of the findings were as follows: “The CBN officers and even the then Acting CBN Governor could not produce the presidential approval of most of the expenses described as “Ways and Means”.

“When confronted to provide  the breakdown of the supposed N22,719,703,774,306.90 that was presented to the 9th  National Assembly to illegally securitise as “Ways and Means” financing, they were only able to partially explain a total of N9,063,286,720,318.92 or N9,258,040,720,318.92 (depending on which official you are considering his submission) and an  unreasonable attribution of non-negotiated/unadvised interest element of N6,678,874,321,541.97. This shows the point where the officers of the immediate past administration as well the erstwhile CBN governor and others connived, defrauded and stole from the common wealth of the country with the aid of civil servants.

“The true position of the “Ways and Means” as documented from the reconciliation between the CBN and the Ministry of Finance at the time is N4, 449, 149, 411. 584.54. This may have been the main reason the past administration hurriedly sought that the advances of N22,719,703,774,306.90 be securitised by the 9th National Assembly on the 19th December 2022; which they also hurriedly did despite the fact that it contravenes Section 38 of the CBN Act, 2007.”

“The probe showed that the CBN Governor on the 19th December 2022 “ signed an advice to the former President Muhammadu Buhari to restructure “Ways and Means” of N23,719,703,774,306.90, despite presenting a different figure to the National Assembly on the same date.

“The fact that the balance of the “Ways and Means” was documented as N26.63 trillion as at June 8, 2023 by the erstwhile CBN Governor shows an unrepentant attitude of the management of the CBN because they continued to carry the “Temporary Advances to the Federal Government” as a running current account, despite the obvious contravention of Section 38 of the CBN Act, 2007, which they swore to uphold,” the document said.

The Fraud In Naira Redesign

“The printing cost was N61.5 billion, out of which N31.79 billion has been paid.”

Obazee, who worked with different teams of crack detectives, also uncovered the intrigues behind the naira redesign, which almost led to the collapse of the nation’s economy.

The outcome of the investigation confirmed that an ex-presidential aide gave the directive to Emefiele.

Section 19(1) of the CBN Act requires that “Naira notes and coins shall be of such forms and designs and bear such devises as shall be approved by the President on the recommendation of the Board of the CBN.”

It was unclear the circumstances under which the former presidential aide allegedly gave instructions to Emefiele.

A document said:  “The Naira Redesign was not approved by the Board of CBN and President Muhammadu Buhari in accordance with the law. Buhari only tagged along. Sometimes in September 2022, the erstwhile Governor of the CBN claimed that during his visit to the Presidential Villa, one of the presidential aides told him to go and consider redesigning the Naira.

“On 6th of October, 2022, Emefiele wrote Buhari seeking approval to redesign and reconfigure N1,000, N500, N200 and N100 notes. Buhari approved the proposal same day. But Buhari approved the currency be printed in Nigeria.

“On that 6th October 2022, former President Muhammadu Buhari approved Emefiele’s request and directed that he should redesign and reconfigure the four denominations of the Naira notes as prayed, but should print them locally.

“Emefiele did not consult with the management of the CBN or seek any recommendation from the Board of the CBN as required by Section 19 of the CBN Act, 2007.

“Emefiele did not seek the recommendation of the Board of the CBN nor revert to former President Muhammadu Buhari to inform him nor seek his presidential approval for the new redesigns and the fact that he is now recommending only three denominations

“Emefiele took the redesigns, a mere change of colour to De La Rue in UK for a fee of £205,000. Only N1, 000, N500 and N200 were redesigned.

“As at August 9, 2023, N769 billion of the new notes were in circulation. The printing cost was N61.5 billion, out of which N31.79 billion has been paid.

In a separate document, the probe confirmed the investment of billions of dollars in 593 foreign accounts in the United States, China and the United Kingdom without approval from the board or the President.

“The former governor of the CBN invested Nigeria’s money without authorisation in 593 foreign accounts in the United States, China and the United Kingdom while he was in charge.

“All the accounts where the billions were lodged have all been traced by the investigator, In the UK alone, Emefiele kept £543,482, 213 in fixed deposits without authorization by the CBN board and the Investment Committee of the bank,” the document added

Tracing COVID-19 Intervention Funds

Another scandal which was unearthed was the inability to trace about N1.62 trillion COVID-19 intervention funds.

It was discovered that “the N1,622,119,412,095.16 was surreptitiously transferred to the following individuals and organizations: Police Trust Fund(N29,750,000,000.00); Companies and individuals (N22,680, 275, 135.45); borrowed for salaries (N720, 682,827,000.00); Donations to public (N40,000,000,000.00); Office of Accountant-General of the Federation (N196, 190,789,994.72); MDAs (N303,514, 294,725.21); and others (N293,986, 243,831.39).

Diversion of N17b by DMB

On the Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry (NESI), the former CBN Governor was accused of unlawful manipulation of the approval of the President.

Investigation indicated that 14 Deposit Money Banks (DMB) were involved in what is termed “criminal diversion of N17, 232,349, 193.55.

But the list of the 14 banks was still kept under wraps as at press time.

According to The Nation Newspaper, a source was quoted saying; “We have the list which includes some rated banks. But at the appropriate time, Nigerians will know them.”

Two of the banks are to refund over N3 billion each.

The least amount to be refunded is N8, 902, 081 by a reputable bank.

Also a web management firm is to refund N4.8 billion, being the sum said to have been illegally diverted from NESI Stabilisation Strategy Limited.

Explaining what Emefiele did, the synopsis of the investigation on NESI was as follows: “The Presidential Approval granted by the then President Goodluck Jonathan was rightly stated by him that NESI should be a Company Limited by Guarantee, but the Committee of Governors misled the Board of the Central Bank of Nigeria by inter-alia:

“Relying on a non-existent advice by the Office of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, to incorporate a Company Limited by Shares for which the Allotted Share Capital exceeded the Authorized Share Capital (See 380% Meeting of the Committee of Governors held in January 2015); and

 ”Allotting unauthorised share capital without lawful approval by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Investigation also spotted illegal Issuance of Debentures by NESI Stabilisation Strategy Limited.

“There was misrepresentation of Presidential Approval (NESI Stabilisation Strategy Limited). NESI, as approved by former President Goodluck Jonathan, was supposed to be an SPV limited by Guarantee, but Emefiele, relying on a non-existent advice, made it a company limited by shares.

“By law, an SPV cannot issue Debentures, as it is precluded from forming a Debenture Trust. Worse still, a virgin entity without any operational track record cannot issue Debentures as it has no trading or earnings history to justify the requirements of the Debenture issue.

“Despite these, the Committee of Governors of the Central Bank of Nigeria on the date of its Meeting of 21st  January 2015,  caused a violation of Section 31 of the CBN Act, 2007 by authorising the issuance of Debentures by NESI Stabilization Strategy Limited to which the initial sum of N64,861,954,000.00 (Sixty Four Billion, Eight Hundred and Sixty One Million, Nine Hundred and Fifty Four Thousand Only), was diverted from Public Funds under the guise of Debenture issuance. This practice has grown to N952,414,745,000 (Nine Hundred and Fifty Two Billion, Four Hundred and Fourteen Million, Seven  Hundred and Forty Five Thousand Naira Only) by the Financial Year end 2021”, the document added.

“N1.325billion was stolen pre-incorporation and the money was funneled to four companies, including a legal firm which got N300 million.”

The note on the allegations against some banks read: “A total of 14 DMBs engaged in the manipulation by unlawfully arranging and collecting 1.9535 percent of the total disbursements paid to the DMBs participating in the Nigerian Electricity Market Stabilisation facility.

“The fees are paid to the banks in the ratio of their contributions to the NEMSF disbursement, according to External Auditor’s Notes to the Financial] Statement of NESI Stabilisation Strategy Limited.”

Also, a firm linked with some CBN officials was paid N4, 897,789,000 allegedly “illegally diverted from NESI Stabilisation Strategy Limited.”


Government issues high-risk warning to Samsung users against compromised security, cyber attack

Are you a frequent smartphone user and own a Samsung Galaxy device? Exercise caution, as there have been recent reports of peculiar hacking incidents. Some users have noted unauthorized access to their phones, while others reported instances of photo deletion.

Additionally, some users have experienced the deletion of their phone’s passcodes and fingerprints. If you find yourself in a similar situation, read on for more information.

“I gazed at my phone in utter disbelief. The screen mocked me with a disheartening message: “Incorrect PIN.” I was certain about my PIN, which I had committed to memory and never changed. In a desperate attempt, I even resorted to using the fingerprint sensor, but to no avail” says Ankita, a regular Samsung Galaxy phone user who was locked out of her phone today morning.


“The question stayed: How could someone alter my phone’s PIN without my knowledge? My phone housed lots of personal information, including messages and photos, making it important that unauthorized access be prevented. As a sense of urgency prevailed, I went online and checked social media,” said Ankita.

“As I scoured online forums for guidance, a shiver ran down my spine. Reports of similar incidents began surfacing, suggesting a burgeoning cyber threat. It appeared that a new breed of hackers was infiltrating phones, manipulating PINs, and depriving users of access to their own devices,” she added.

Government issues warning
Meanwhile, India’s CERT-In department, responsible for addressing cybersecurity issues, issued a high-risk warning to notify Samsung Galaxy phone users about potential security threats to their data. The advisory emphasizes the urgency of updating the operating system (OS) and firmware to minimize these risks.

Several vulnerabilities have been identified in Samsung Mobile Android versions 11, 12, 13, and 14. One notable vulnerability allows attackers to exploit the system, potentially leading to information theft, code execution, and device compromise.

CERT-In explicitly mentioned that users who neglect to update their devices expose themselves to increased hacking threats. While Samsung has released patches to address these vulnerabilities, it is crucial for users, like Ankita and others who encountered issues, to prioritize updating their phone to protect their devices from potential data breaches.

For the unversed, cyberattack refers to attempts to steal, expose, alter, disable or destroy information through unauthorized access to computer systems, cellphones, laptops, and tabs.

Aside from keeping your phone’s operating system up to date, there are several other precautions you can take to enhance your device’s security. Additionally, if you suspect your phone has been hacked, here are some steps you can take to address the situation:

Precautions to enhance phone security

1. Use Strong Passwords/PINs:- Set strong, unique passwords or PINs for your device lock screen and any sensitive apps.
2. Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA):- Enable 2FA for your accounts whenever possible, adding an extra layer of security.
3. App Permissions:- Regularly review and manage app permissions. Only grant necessary permissions to apps.
4. Install Apps from Trusted Sources:- Download and install apps only from official app stores to reduce the risk of malware.
5. Regularly Update Apps:- Keep all installed apps up to date to patch potential security vulnerabilities.
6. Secure Wi-Fi Connections:- Use secure and password-protected Wi-Fi networks. Avoid connecting to public Wi-Fi for sensitive activities.
7. Avoid Clicking on Suspicious Links:- Be cautious of phishing attempts. Avoid clicking on suspicious links in emails or messages.
8. Regularly Back Up Data:- Back up your device regularly to ensure you can recover important data if needed.
9. Device Encryption:- Enable device encryption to protect your data in case your phone is lost or stolen.
10. Install Security Apps:- Consider installing reputable antivirus or security apps for an additional layer of protection.

What to do if your phone is hacked

1. Disconnect from the Internet:- If you suspect your phone is hacked, disconnect it from the internet (Wi-Fi and mobile data) to prevent further unauthorized access.
2. Change Passwords:- Change passwords for your email, social media, and other critical accounts immediately.
3. Run a Security Scan:- Use a reputable antivirus or security app to scan your device for malware.
4. Remove Suspicious Apps:- Uninstall any unfamiliar or suspicious-looking apps from your device.
5. Check and Update Security Settings:- Review and update security settings on your accounts and devices.
6. Update Operating System:- Ensure your device’s operating system is up to date to patch any known vulnerabilities.
7. Contact Service Provider:- If necessary, contact your mobile service provider to report the incident and seek assistance.
8. Consider a Factory Reset:- If the issue persists, consider performing a factory reset on your device. Note that this will erase all data, so ensure you have a backup.
9. Monitor Accounts:- Keep a close eye on your accounts for any suspicious activities and report them promptly.

10. Seek Professional Help:- If you’re unsure or unable to resolve the issue on your own, seek assistance from a professional or your device’s customer support.

Users of Apple and Samsung devices have received warnings from the Indian government’s emergency response team about potential security vulnerabilities. Hackers may exploit these vulnerabilities to access sensitive information, induce denial of service, bypass authentication, gain elevated privileges, and even launch cyber attacks on targeted systems. It is surprising to learn that, despite the strong brand reputation of Apple and Samsung, their smartphones are susceptible to cyber threats. Therefore, users must exercise caution and take measures to protect their devices from these potential threats.

The decision not to update the OS automatically is often based on a balance between user control, device limitations, network conditions, and ensuring a positive user experience. Manufacturers aim to strike a balance that considers these factors while encouraging users to keep their devices up to date for security and performance reasons.
