According to a report by The PUNCH, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s Lagos zonal office has obtained the conviction of Joseph Adele, Richie Ojeba, and John Ogo for an N65 million fraud from the Special Offences Court in Ikeja, presided over by Justice Mojisola Dada.

The convicts began their journey to prison, according to the EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, after conspiring to defraud Dr Joseph Mekiliuwa, the Managing Director of Wealth Builders Technical Services, through a fictitious contract they claimed Total Exploration and Production Nigeria Limited was offering for the installation of solar panels in the Egi community, Port Harcourt.

The statement read in part, “They were first arraigned in September 2020 on 15 counts bordering on conspiracy, stealing and obtaining by false pretences, to which they pleaded not guilty.

“However, on June 17, 2021, they changed their plea to guilty, when they were re-arraigned before the trial judge on amended three counts.”

One of the counts read, “That you, Joseph Worhabiko Adele (aka Joseph Azunda), Richie Edward Ojeba, John Ovie Ogo, Beauty Wugate Adele (still at large) and Hajia Jemila Yunusa (still at large), sometime in March 2019 in Lagos, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, conspired to steal the sum of  N65,070,000, property of Dr Joseph Mekiliuwa, Managing Director, Wealth Builders Technical Services.”

According to the statement, Ojeba was also accused of possessing fraudulent documents used in the fraud.

The prosecuting counsel, S. O. Daji, told the court that the EFCC received a petition from the complainant accusing the defendants and others of defrauding him in January 2020.

“Investigation was subsequently carried out and it was discovered that the complainant was defrauded of N65,070,000, with the three defendants being beneficiaries of the fraud,” he said.

Daji also informed the court that the first defendant received N13,806,000, while the second and third defendants each received N22,350,000 and N22,150,000.

He further informed the court, “As part of the plea bargain, the first defendant has so far refunded N6,000,000 to the complainant; the second defendant has so far refunded N20,000,000, while the third defendant has refunded N12,500,000.”

He presented the EFCC with the convicts’ statements as well as the fraudulent documents obtained from the third defendant as evidence.

The defendants were all convicted on count one and sentenced to six months in prison, according to the anti-graft agency’s statement.

“They were sentenced to one year in prison on count two. The third defendant was further convicted on count three and sentenced to six months in jail. The sentences are to run concurrently. They were, however, given an option of N500,000 in lieu of the jail terms,” the statement added.

Tony [Rudiger] and I are friends. “There was nothing significant,” Pogba, who was named man of the match, said after the game in his post-match press conference.

“I believe you saw the television pictures; this is all over; this belongs in the past; I am not crying for yellow or red cards as a result of such actions.

“He nibbled, I believe, a little on me, but we’ve known each other for a long time.

“I felt it, I told the referee, he makes the decisions, and he makes the decision. It’s over; all I want to do now is play football.

“He hasn’t received a card, and I think it’s better that way. It was a fantastic match for us, the fans, and the spectators. I don’t want him to be suspended as a result of this situation. We hugged each other at the end of the game, and that was the end of it.”

Insecurity: How the Nigerian Army Chief, Yahaya Bello, plans to address security challenges

 

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Major Gen. Faruk Yahaya, stated that addressing Nigeria’s security challenges required the collaboration of all stakeholders.

Yahaya made the revelation when he appeared before the Joint House of Representatives Committees on Defence and the Army for screening on Tuesday in Abuja.

The COAS said he hopes to bring his thirty-six years of experience in the Army to work with other service chiefs and all stakeholders to tackle security challenges in Nigeria.

“From my experience, this job can’t be done by a single service or entity, the Army itself is a group work, not individual and that’s why we’re arranged in sections, companies, battalions and brigades.

“Captured in the vision of the previous COAS, and in my vision as well, is the mention of a collaborative environment in what we do, having realized that this job is not a one-service job.

“It also necessitates other agencies and stakeholders, and as we speak, the former chief has already gathered these as a cornerstone for the achievement of his mandate, as evidenced by the composition of the Army, Navy, and Air Force, as well as the Police, DSS, and Civil Defence, and all other stakeholders,” he said.

Yahaya went on to say that internal security is an intelligence-driven operation that requires traditional rulers, communities, opinion leaders, and anyone else who can provide information, emphasizing that the enemy hides within us.

He believes that traditional rulers should provide information, support, and collaborate with the Army.

 

The Nigerian Army will win all battles because we are loyal to Buhari.
