Court remands businessman in prison for alleged N10m fraud
Mr Umoh allegedly stole Nigerian Flour Mills' shares belonging to a businessman.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Tony Orilade, said Mr Umoh was charged before Justice Salisu Garba of the Federal High Court in Maitama with eight counts bordering on breach of trust and forgery.
The EFCC said the accused fled to Ghana when he realised that the anti-graft agency was investigating the alleged fraud, prompting the commission to declare him wanted.
”The sum of N10,000,000.00 (Ten Million Naira) by Alhaji Abba Musa Rimi for the purchase of 400,00.00 units of shares of Nigerian Flour Mills did commit criminal breach of trust by dishonestly converting the said sum to your own use,
According to the statement, the defendant pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
”Consequently, the defence counsel asked for a short adjournment and prayed that the defendant is remanded in EFCC’s custody.”Read more: Premium Times
