    Posted by on January 9, 2020, Under: News

Three suspected fraudsters have been araingned for attempting to defraud Ebonyi State Government of the sum of N3.6 billion (USD10,000,000.00).

They were arraigned by the Department of State Services (DSS) on Thursday in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.

They were accused of approaching Governor David Umahi in December 2019 claiming they were representatives of a foreign company and had $125 million to give to the State Government.

They allegedly told the Governor that the condition for the smooth receipt of the grant was if there was up to $10 million in the State Government’s United Bank Africa account.

Governor Umahi, while relaying his experience with the suspects, recently said “Some group of people in the past two months said they have $125 million to give us. I told my Commissioner for Finance that it doesn’t sound real. I know immediately that it was a scam but my commissioner for finance continued pushing innocently.

“Because of his belief that it is real, I told him to go ahead. They said they were investors and that they have money to give to us free of charge. They said we should bring $125 million US dollars. And out of the money, they will only take $25 million dollars to develop our place while the remaining $100million US dollars will be our own.

They were arraigned on Thursday, at the Magistrate’s Court on six counts bothering on felony, attempt to defraud, amongst others.

The Service’s Prosecutor, C.P. Njoku, told the court that the offense was punishable under sections 516A (a), 509 and 484 of the Criminal Code Cap. 33, Vol. 1 Laws of Ebonyi State of Nigeria, 2009.
