Access Bank, which acquired Intercontinental Bank in 2012, had filed a debt recovery action in a London High Court, in respect of the sum said to have been converted and allegedly misappropriated by Erastus Akingbola who was also saddled with the responsibility of paying for the cost incurred by Access Bank while processing the case.
