Heritage Bank Sends Comedian Ali Baba's Wife On Loan-Recovery Suspension





Let me assume that becoming an ED in a bank is not a day job and i commend her resilience though I don't also know if you can get there without paying your dues, knowing what Nigeria is today; Those that have the qualification are rarely those that make it to the top position. Let me hope she made a mistake and found herself in this hot mess.


Heritage Bank of Nigeria has taken an unprecedented step against one of its executive directors, Mary Akpobome, who happens to be the wife of popular Nigerian comedian Ali Baba: an indefinite suspension to go and recover loans she signed off on. Heritage Bank is facing difficulties arising from insider abuse and self-dealing.

Several bank sources told Sahara Reporters that Mrs. Akpobome and powerful bank management were abusing their positions and engaging in fraud. But today, Mrs. Akpobome and an unnamed account officer were sent packing leading her to clear her desk because she anticipates that the task was so impossible she may not return to the bank.

The bank management initially refused to touch the powerful executive directors, preferring to go after staff members suspected of revealing the bank's problems. It was learned that the bank Managing Director, Ifie Sekibo has not been to work since January, and was reported to be ill. Some of the sources within the bank, however, said his prolonged absence might have been to enable Mrs. Akpobome to be thrown under the bus as investors’ confidence has waned over the lack of action concerning top management staff fingered in fraudulent transactions.

It would be recalled that only last week, an Abuja company petitioned the Federal High Court and the Central Bank of Nigeria to liquidate the bank on account of its inability to meet customers’ demands.  Geonel Integrated Services Limited, a security services company, cited its own experience, claiming it has over N1.8billion and another $85,859 trapped in various Heritage Bank accounts.
