Booklovers in Lagos were treated to an afternoon of uplifting creative interactions at a book reading event organized by Guaranty Trust Bank (Guaranty Trust) on Sunday, October 9, 2022, at the Herbert Macauley Library, Yaba. The event is an offshoot of Guaranty Trust’s You Read initiative which aims to champion continuous learning and promote a reading culture across Africa as part of its CSR policy.The selected literature for the book reading was, Nearly All the Men in Lagos Are Mad by Damilare Kuku – a work of fiction that chronicles the experiences of various women as they navigate the world of friendships, dating, and marriage in Africa’s most populous metropolis. Each of the 12 stories employs brilliant characterization and witty dialogue to deliver relatable content and evoke familiar emotions. The author recited different portions of the book during the session and went on to explain her influences. She also offered some colour to her characters which fed the audiences’ curiosity and sparked a range of reactions. Attendees were allowed to join the discussion, and some got to share their personal experiences. The event was compered by Judith Atibi, radio personality and broadcast journalist, and featured a poetry act by Kolade Pelumi, a budding spoken word artist. Commenting on the You Read initiative, the Managing Director of Guaranty Trust Bank Ltd, Miriam Olusanya, said; “Reading is a rewarding life-long practice that greatly impacts quality of life – from building character and shaping thought to guiding ambition. With You Read, we are providing a platform that nurtures talent and rewards creative enterprise whilst fostering social engagement especially amongst youths in the society.” She further added; “We will continue to explore opportunities to expand our reach and impact with this initiative as it demonstrates our unwavering commitment to creating better outcomes for people and the communities where we operate through education.”The Herbert Macauley Library was refurbished and equipped by Guaranty Trust Bank in 2017. The project, which was executed in partnership with the Lagos State Government, included internal and external remodeling of the physical structure, refitting of furniture, installation of computers and internet facilities to start an e-library as well as provision of new books. Guaranty Trust Bank is the flagship subsidiary of Guaranty Trust Holding Company Plc, a leading financial services company providing banking and non-banking services across eleven countries spanning West Africa, East Africa, and the United Kingdom.

ALPHA MORGAN CAPITAL MANAGERS STAFF IN N138M NAIRA FRAUD 

Published

on

Investment banker with Alpha Morgan Capital, Lagos, Odusanya Ajibola alleged to have swindled his step uncle,one Rotimi Edu of N138 million, has been dragged before a Federal High Court in Lagos.

 

In a petition sent to the Lagos state Commissioner of Police by the law firm of Fountain Court Partners, it was alleged that Edu was a victim of fraud and obtaining by false pretences between the months of June, 2023 and August, 2023,when Ajibola Odusanya ,an investment banker with Alpha Morgan Capital, Lagos represented to Mr Rotimi Edu falsely that there was property he could and would help him to buy in London.

 

 

The petition said that following this representation which later turned out be false, Mr Edu at various times from June, to August,2023 parted with sums amounting to N138,800,000 to Ajibola Odusanya who presented forged property transaction document to Mr Edu.

 

It said when the fraud was discovered, Ajibola Odusanya offered to refund the money and he issued further forged documents from a supposed UK realtor and a forged TSB cheque to Mr Edu.

He further informed Mr Edu that he had transferred the sum of N5,000,000.00 (Five Million Naira) into his Bank Account but he never did.

 

It said at a point in time, Ajibola Odusanya offered to transfer the equivalent of the sum of 97,000,00 pounds into Mr Edu’s account but he tried to do so with a fake cheque that was unpresentable and then claimed that he had some money in Nigeria and would refund the money to Mr.Edu as soon as he arrived in the country at 12, noon on the 20th of November, 2023.

 

The petition said it was discovered that Ajibola Odusanya never had the intention of buying any property for Mr Edu but instead used same as a ruse to fraudulently obtain the sum of N138,800,000.00 (One Hundred & Thirty Eight Million Eight Hundred Thousand Naira) from him and had since fraudulently converted the money into personal use and has no intention to ever refund the money.

 

Consequently,the petitioner urged the Lagos state Commissioner of Police to use his good offices to investigate the matter.

 

The presiding Judge, Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke has adjourned till 23rd of May,2024 for commencement of trial.
