The Economic and financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 arraigned one Isa Mohammed before Justice M.A Nasir of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, sitting in Jabi, Abuja on a 10-count charge bordering on criminal breach of trust.

 

Mohammed allegedly defrauded one Emmanuel Roberts Ejeh to the tune of N9.5million.  According to the petitioner, the said money was entrusted to the accused by the victim to purchase nine shops in Garki and karu markets in Abuja. The accused allegedly converted the money to his use and went underground. All efforts by the victim to get a refund of his money yielded no result.  

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to him.

Justice Nasir however admitted the accused to bail in the sum of  N1m (one million naira) with two sureties who must be resident within the jurisdiction of the court.

The accused is to be remanded in prison custody pending the time his bail terms are met.

The case has been adjourned to January 25, 2016 for commencement of trial.
