Popular Nigerian singer, Peter Okoye, renowned by stage name, Mr P, has called out some Nigerian banks over identity scams.
Recall that Mr P, member of Psquare duo, runs a lottery programme which online fraudsters have been using to scam people using his name.
Taking to his Instagram page, the singer, who stated that he is fed up with them, revealed that scammers have been opening accounts in his name to scam victims.
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.”
