The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday arraigned Professor Brimmy Asekhruagbon Uzimeghan Olaghere, before Justice U.P Kekemeke of the FCT High Court sitting in Apo, on a 2-count charge, for obtaining goods and cars by false pretence.

Olaghere was alleged to have defrauded Okwosu Chinedu and Joyjoe Global Link Limited to the tune of N56,032,000.

EFCC said Olaghere had in July 2014 obtained various goods worth over N22 million from Chinedu with the claim that the goods were meant for UNITED AFRICA STATES.

The same month, the accused obtained eight cars/goods worth over N35 million from JOYJOE GLOBAL LINK LIMITED under false pretence that the said cars were meant for UNITED AFRICAN DIASPORA STATES, UNITED AFRICAN STATES, NEW AFRICA’S WORLD BANK and FEDERATED UNITED AFRICAN STATES.

His claims were false, EFCC Said.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to him. Following his plea, counsel to EFCC, Onjefu Obe, asked the court for a trial date to present his witnesses.

Defence counsel, Ochumba Kingsley, however, urged the court to admit his client to bail, assuring that the accused person will be available to face his trial.

Justice Kekemeke, thereafter, admitted the accused person to bail in the sum of N20 million and two sureties in like sum, the sureties must be senior civil servants and have landed property in FCT Abuja.

The case was adjourned to October 26, 2015 for commencement of trial.
