The United Bank for Africa (UBA) has returned N20,726 to Ibrahim Gaya, whose account was emptied by a scammer in January.

This came three hours after FIJ published a story on the unauthorised deduction.

The money was deducted on the evening of January 24, a few minutes after Gaya received a strange sign-in notification.

UBA had claimed that the bank was not liable for the fraudulent transaction when contacted for comments. Gaya’s UBA account was, however, credited with the debited sum at exactly 12:28 pm on Tuesday.

He also said he was working on closing down the account completely to prevent recurrence, as this was the second time a fraudster would empty that particular UBA account in two months.
