The Head of Sales for Procter and Gamble company, Mr Emmanuel Chigozie Eze has been arrested by EFCC Operatives in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital, for allegedly spending company money to fund online betting.
The arrest was made following a petition against Mr Eze which alleged that he used his position in the company to supply goods worth over 20 million Naira which he converted to his personal use.
According to PM News, investigations which are still ongoing have revealed that between March 2020 to January 2021, Mr Eze sold company goods to various customers and deceptively channelled the money into his account rather than company account. Further more, between July 2020 and December 2020, Mr Eze received goods to the tune of over 18million naira from one of the company's major supplier but the goods were not fully delivered.
It was further uncovered that Mr Eze is a gambling addict and has spent over 4million naira daily placing bets that yielded next to nothing.
The case is still ongoing and as soon as investigations are concluded,the suspect will be charged to court.
