An allegation, Omale denied.
The Managing Director of First City Monument Bank, Adam Nuru, however, absolved the clergy of any wrongdoing when he was interrogated by the panel on transactions involving the account number of the Ministry, claiming that the controversial amount of money was erroneously transferred.
