N15m Dud Cheque: EFCC Arraigns Chimela Ijeomah


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on April 9, 2013 arraigned Chimela Ijeomah and Jeh Engineering Services before Justice Usman A. Musale of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory sitting in Kubwa, Abuja on a five count charge bordering on intent to defraud and obtaining money by false pretence.

The two accused persons pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to them prompting the EFCC Counsel, A .A Okoja to pray the court for a trial date and remand the accused persons in prison custody.

Defence counsel, Onuoha Emmanuel raised a motion for the bail of the accused person, saying he has filed a 15 paragraph affidavit to support his application. Prosecution counsel did not oppose the bail application.

Justice Musale therefore granted bail to the accused person in the sum of N 500,000.00 and two sureties each. The case has been adjourned to May 7, 2013 for hearing.
