The Lagos Police Command has effected the arrest a couple for allegedly stealing N38 million at a health insurance company.
Funmilayo Oyelaja, 38, and Tunde Ogunseye, 42, fled to Ghana after the crime, but were arrested after Mr Ogunseye returned home for the burial of his mother.
The police paraded the couple in Lagos on Monday. Although not legally married, they have been partners since 2015.
Being the prime suspect, Ms Oyelaja willingly turned herself in after her partner was arrested. She worked with Clearline Health Insurance Limited where she allegedly siphoned money meant for health insurance.
She claimed that contrary reports, she only stole N38 million and not N60 million, she added that the company diverted the money that was meant to return to NHIS, to an account where the company fixed it, and her superiors were aware of the illegality.
Tunde Ogunseye, the partner who was arrested by the police, said he did not know much about the crime, only that they travelled to Ghana together.
He claimed she has been his girlfriend since 2015 and they already had their visas before they received a strange call advising them to leave Nigeria.
