The bank said it had been informed by Citibank earlier in October of a R150-million drop in its account.
"NBE brought to the attention of Citibank it had not endorsed any payment and that larceny had happened," it said.
Citibank returned the money and a probe ensued. "Three Nigerian nationals were detained as they allegedly went to a bank in South Korea to withdraw the money, under a forged signature of the governor of NBE," the bank said. – Reuters
