45-year-old Bidemi Ajobiewe was found giving a fake alias to employees Zachary Seibold and Tyrone Johnson of Simmons Bank on February 6th 2023. He placed a large amount of money in the account at separate times, including deposits of $102,000 and $128,000 placed under the name “Markus Logan,” which were quickly frozen for fraud. After Ajobiewe found out his accounts were frozen, he contacted customer service and told them to tell employees Zach and Tyrone that he was going to “blow the bank up” and that he was “Coming to the bank with a rifle, and I’m going to kill all the staff at the branch.” He said that they were “going to feel all the pain that I’m feeling.” This threat led to the bank closing business for the day. Later, the same day, Ajobiewe sent Zach a direct message telling him, “I want you to know I’m coming to the bank with a rifle. It’s either you get killed, or I get killed today.” But before Ajobiewe could take action, the Simmons Bank fraud investigation unit determined Ajobiewe’s real identity, which led to Seibold and Johnson identifying Ajobiewe. Ajobiewe was taken into custody and charged with assault and false report on November 8th.
