Impersonation: Peter Okoye threatens lawsuit against Polaris, Access banks

Nigerian singer and internet personality Peter Okoye, popularly called Mr P, has threatened lawsuits against Polaris and Access banks.

Okoye had cried out last year over how online fraudsters were using his name to scam people on the internet.

DAILY POST recalls that the singer has been running a lottery programme under his name, and online fraudsters have also been using the same name to scam people.

Taking to his Instagram page and his official X handle on Wednesday to express his frustration, Okoye questioned why banks would allow anyone to open an account in his name without verification.

Sharing pictures of the banks, the singer threatened a lawsuit against them for damages and promised to call out more banks.

He tweeted: “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.”
