A Nigerian businessman, Godwin Onwunema Udu, who allegedly hacked into the electronic mail of a bank (name withheld) and stole GH¢25,000, is in the grips of the law.
ASP Nyavor said Udu hacked into the bank’s email account and transferred the money from a customer’s account.
ASP Nyavor stated that the bank noticed the fraud, and mounted surveillance and arrested the suspect at Haatso, Accra, branch of another bank, when the suspect presented a cheque for the withdrawal of money from his account.
