EFCC Detains Former Skye Bank Chairman Tunde Ayeni Over N1bn Bribe

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), have arrested and detained Tunde Ayeni, a former chairman of Skye Bank, over allegations that he bribed ex-FCT Minister, Bala Mohammed to acquire 54 plots of land in Abuja.

EFCC sources confirmed that Mr Ayeni was indeed arrested yesterday and the big man was still in detention because he was initially uncooperative.

One of the sources told SR that Mr. Ayeni is also being investigated for playing roles in several other deals involving former First Lady Patience Jonathan and ex-head of state, Abubakar Abdulsalam, who co-owns a telecommunications company with the former banking executive.

The sources disclosed that Mr. Ayeni was still undergoing interrogation and may remain in detention as investigators work hard to unearth "many more deals".


  1. These are one of the guys that have cripple skye Bank for several years now..
    Skye Bank have been performing poorly both in the Nigeria Stock exchange and Banking financial services.. Imagine Skye bank have one of the highest NPL (Non Performing Loan),secondly I just cant still fathom the idea how they came about acquiring mainstreet bank because I knew it will definitely choke them..
    I knew that their were many bad management destroying this great bank from the inside..

    What a great news that efcc have wave into the matter for other reasons that will relate to my recent accusation is he is properly investigated..

    Imagine as @ today Skye Bank shares worth 0.52 kobo, that's disastrous..
