The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Wednesday July 31, 2013 arrested one Barrister Ambrose Owuru over an allegation of obtaining the sum of sixty-six million naira (N66, 000,000.00) from one Ikechukwu Eze under false pretence.
A second prosecution witness in the on-going trial of Walter Wagbatsoma and four others implicated in a N1.9billion subsidy scam, on Tuesday, July 30, 2013, shed more light into how the accused persons fraudulently obtained the sum from the Petroleum Support Fund.
The witness, Muhammed Ala Shehu who was cross examined by the three defence counsel, told a Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja that all information contained in his testimony before the court were derived from documents sent to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and interviews conducted with various parties at the inception of the investigation of the case.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, today, July 24, 2013 arraigned two suspects, Joseph Olatunde Badmus and Akeju Isaac Bola, before Justice Mudashiru Oniyangi of the FCT High Court, Abuja on a 30-count charge bordering on conspiracy, personation and forgery.
The suspects are alleged to have been parading themselves as EFCC officials and defrauding unsuspecting victims of millions of naira under the pretext of assisting them to suppress petitions pending before the Commission.
