Jonathan’s Ex-Aide, Others Used Fake Addresses to Commit $31.4m Fraud – EFCC

Published

on

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, yesterday, told a Federal High Court in Lagos that fictitious addresses were given for companies used by Mr. Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel Dudafa, a former Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs to President Jonathan, and two other persons, in an alleged $31.4m fraud.

EFCC lawyer, Rotimi Oyedepo, said this while informing the court of the Commission’s inability to effect service of the charge on the eighth defendant (Globus Integrated Services Limited).

The firm is charged alongside former presidential aide, Amajuoyi Azubike Briggs and one Damola Bolodeoku.

Other companies in the charge marked as FHC/337C/16, alongside the three accused persons, are: Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited, Seagate Property Development and Investment Company Limited, Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited, Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited.
Oyedepo urged the court to allow the Commission effect the service of the charge on the second accused person, who he said was the secretary to the listed companies.

The prosecutor supported his submission with section 123 paragraph B (iii) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA).

He said: “In line with section 123, paragraph B (iii) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA), in effecting service, this can be done on the secretary of the company. We have gone to the company and found out that they are not in existence.”
