The suspects, 36-year-old Michael Damhindi, (who is a security guard with an old generation bank), Chidi Emmanuel Aniekwe (32), and Terhemba Iorhen (35) would station themselves around ATM machines and ready to help bank customers who have difficulties actualising their transactions in ATM machines and in the process harvest their victim’s vital account details for their criminal purposes.
