As the Yuletide Season is fast approaching, it is not with it’s usual attendant increase in various crimes.
A lady recently lost her purse inside one of the new generation banks in Owerri capital. According to her, the young man came close to her and asked her for something while she was trying to complete her teller for deposit. It is believed he did this to distract her. She raised alarm when she was done with her teller but couldn’t find her money again. All efforts by the staff of the bank to identify the culprit proved futile.
Citizens are advised to be conscious of their environment and people around them at all times.
