Peter Okoye, commonly known as Mr. P, is one half of the musical group Psquare. He recently took to his social media accounts to publicly expose two commercial banks for aiding con artists disguising themselves as him.
Mr. P didn’t hold back when he singled out Polaris and Access Bank while using his Instagram platform to make his voice heard. He said that they supported con artists who audaciously impersonated him.
The musician revealed in a ferocious way that these banks had allowed the con artists to open an account under the name “PETER OKOYE PsQUARE.” He also called attention to the ludicrous lack of proper identity, biometrics, BVNs (Bank Verification Numbers), or addresses that are legitimate and match the credentials of the account holder.
Fuming with exasperation, he underscored how the negligence of these banks was essentially aiding and abetting fraudsters who were capitalizing on his name to deceive unsuspecting individuals. Mr. P made it crystal clear that he’s had enough and that he suspects an inside job within these financial institutions.
Asserting his commitment to safeguarding his reputation and coming to the aid of innocent victims, he minced no words in declaring his intention to unleash his legal squad on the banks, filing a lawsuit for the damages incurred.
He didn’t stop there—Mr. P vowed to shine a spotlight on more implicated banks. He then directly pinged the EFCC and urged them to sit up and pay attention to the brewing storm.
“Enough is Enough! It’s either it’s an inside job or otherwise! I have a name to protect here and save some of this 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 allowed someone open an account name “PETER OKOYE PSQUARE “without valid means of identification, no biometrics, no BVN, no verified address 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 Banks for damages and calling them out! One after the other! @officialefcc take note! Enough is enough! Calling out more banks!”
