‘Theft inside bank’: Centenary bank denies using fake CCTV cameras



Centenary bank Lira branch has vehemently denied installing and currently using fake Closed Circuit Television [CCTV] cameras.

This defense comes after one of its customers claimed early last month that about shs3m which was to be deposited into his company account was stolen from the bank.

“We have lost three million in Centenary bank yesterday; thugs stole it before banking, pray for us,” Sam Aliga, a businessman in Lira town said.

Asked if there was no help from the bank, he added angrily: “Friends those Cameras in the bank are fake. We tried but we failed completely. It’s Lira Branch. They are using magic in the bank inform you various public about this.”

Responding to the claim, Charles Ebinu who’s the Lira bank branch manager laughed off the claim and quickly termed it false.

Mr Ebinu – in a phone interview with this contemporary news website didn’t want to accept any knowledge over the claim.

“Am not aware and none of my staff has briefed me about it,” he responded.

“What I’m aware about is that a certain lady came with a black cavera to the banking hall and immediately walked out with the same in a company of a certain man. This is on record with our systems,” he added.

According to Mr Ebinu, the female customer who was to deposit the money and a certain man were later shown video recording of how business of that day went. He says they never said anything more on watching the video clip.
