The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke (SAN) today charged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to continue to discharge its functions within the ambits of the law. Adoke gave this charge while inaugurating the board of the Commission at his office. "I therefore enjoin you to ensure that respect for the rule of law and due process, should at all time be your guiding principle," he said.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Friday, July 19, 2013 arrested Dr. Princewell Arinze Chukwueze, an alleged serial fraudster, over a $92,000(Ninety-Two Thousand United States Dollars) scam.
Chukwueze was arrested in Abuja by operatives of the EFCC after more than two months' frantic manhunt for him. His arrest followed an allegation of fraudulent transactions involving him and a notable Bureau de change operator in Lagos on May 10, 2013.
Justice Dije Abdu Aboki of the High Court of Kano State today July 22, 2013 convicted and sentenced Usman Salifu to two years imprisonment for stealing.
