EFCC Docks Man For N69m Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday, May 22, 2017, arraigned a suspected fraudster, Oladipo Adedokun, alongside  Lorient Habour Hotel Limited before Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye of the State High Court, sitting in Ikeja, on a four-count charge bordering on issuance of dud cheques and obtaining money under false pretence to the tune of N69, 605,000.00 (Sixty-nine Million, Six Hundred and Five Thousand Naira).

One of the charges reads: “That you, Oladipo Tajudeen Adedokun and Lorient Habour Hotel Limited, on or about the 27thday of September, 2012, at Lagos within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court with intent to defraud fraudulently obtained the sum of Sixty- nine Million, Six Hundred and Five Thousand Naira (N69, 605, 000.00) from the Nigeria Navy on the false representation that you had Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollar (10, 000 Pounds Sterling) to sell to the Nigeria Navy, which representation you knew was false.’’

 The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to all the charges preferred against him.
In view of his plea, prosecution counsel, George Geoffrey Chia-Yakua, asked the court for a trial date and also prayed the court to remand the defendant in prison custody.
Although the defendant was not represented by his counsel in court, Justice Ipaye ordered him to get in touch with his counsel in readiness for the continuation of the matter.  Consequently, Justice Ipaye adjourned the matter to June 27 and 28, 2017 for the prosecution to open its case and ordered the defendant to be remanded in Kirikiri prison custody.
