Court Adjourns Hearing Of Case Against Lagos Businessman Until 29th January, 2020 Over N2.9 Billion Fraud

0

The ongoing court break has mired the arraignment of the Lagos businessman, Kenneth Ndubuisi Amadi, alleged to have obtained the sum of N2.9bn by false pretences from Eunisell Limited, a petroleum company.

 Thus, the case has been adjourned until 29th January, 2020  when the accused businessman will be arraigned alongside his company, Idid Nigeria Limited.

The offences were suspected to have been committed contrary to section 1(1)(a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and other fraud related offences Act, CapA6, laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 and punishable under section 1(3) of the same Act.

However the defendant was not in court, his counsel, Emeka Etiaba (SAN), and prosecuting state counsel from Directorate of Public Prosecution from the Federal Ministry of Justice, Abuja, A K.  Alilu, were in court.

When the matter was first stated in court last December, the defendants were not in court for this reason the matter was then adjourned until 9th January, 2020  for arraignment but the court was on vacation.

Emeka informed the court that they were not opposing arraignment and trial, before the matter was eventually adjourned to the new date.
