Mr P Threatens Legal Action Against Banks for Allowing Scammers to Use His Name

Nigerian singer and internet personality, Peter Okoye, famously known as Mr P, has issued a stern warning of impending legal action against Polaris and Access banks. Last year, Okoye raised concerns about his name being exploited by online fraudsters for illicit activities on the internet.

DAILY POST has been informed that the artist has been operating a legitimate lottery program under his name. Unfortunately, individuals with malicious intent have capitalized on the same name, using it to deceive unsuspecting victims.

Expressing his frustration and concern, Peter Okoye took to his Instagram and official X handle on Wednesday. He questioned the banks’ practices, expressing disbelief that they permitted the creation of accounts under his name without proper verification procedures.

Accompanied by images of the banks, Okoye did not mince words as he threatened legal action against these financial institutions for the damage caused. He vowed to take a stand for his reputation and to protect those who had fallen victim to these fraudulent activities. In his post, he stated:

“Enough is enough. It’s either an inside job or otherwise. I have a name to protect here and save some of these innocent victims. So get ready for me and my legal team.

How can @polarisbankltd and @myaccessbank allow someone to open an account in the name of ‘PETER OKOYE PSQUARE’ without valid means of identification, no BVN, no biometrics, no verified address or even utility bill to correspond with the address of the account owner. Now they are using my name to scam innocent people. I’m suing this bank for damages @officialefcc take note.”

Peter Okoye’s public declaration highlights his determination to safeguard his identity and reputation from being tarnished by these fraudulent activities. As he initiates legal action against the banks, he also aims to raise awareness about the critical need for financial institutions to enhance their verification processes and prevent such misuse of names for illicit activities.
