General Manager Internal Audit and Fraud Management

Meet Ibe, our General Manager Internal Audit and Fraud Management!


Hand in hand with our Risk Management colleagues, it is important that the right guidelines, processes, policies and procedures are in place to guide the business on an ethical path. In this regard, we make sure that we do not just talk but walk the talk from within the Y’elloverse.

I am a certified fraud examiner, certified internal auditor, forensic accountant, certified information systems auditor, certified risk management professional and a chartered accountant with a Bachelor’s in Biochemistry from the University of Lagos and a Master’s in Business Administration, specialising in Strategic Planning, from Heriot Watts University, Edinburgh, UK.

I bring over 17 years of experience from top companies including Helios Towers, KPMG and Intercontinental Bank (now Access Bank) and Siemens where some of my achievements include pioneering the 1st country based risk assessment benchmarking and Antitrust Risk Exposure (AREA) profiling; establishing the sustainability/CSR function in the Nigerian office, and being recognised as a ‘future maker’ employee in the Randstad Group’s 2018 ‘Standing Out’ publication

I joined the MTN family in 2019.

For my team and I, we will ensure that as a brand we remain efficient in delivering on our set objectives as we oversee, guide and mitigate our internal controls, business process modelling, fraud management and corporate governance.

It’s your business, and we will keep it ethical. This is a promise.
