EFCC Arrests Ambrose Alli University Professor Over $48, 500 (N7.5m) Fraud

If this story reported by Vanguard is anything to go by, the I wonder why the elders in this country complain about our generation. They have been the cause of all the misfortunes in this country. They are the corrupt ones that the younger ones are learning from. Nigerian youths are really trying for themselves by going into several ventures to make a living but they still frustrate our efforts by giing us poor or no power, light, security, etc.

Read the following before I start to deviate into another topic.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Monday, arraigned a senior lecturer at the Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma, Edo State, Dr. Stephen Obekpa Abah before an Abuja High Court.

Abah was docked on a two count criminal charge bordering on criminal breach of trust, conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretence.

He was said to have between August 2008 and March 2009, obtained the sum of $ 48,500 from one Udeh Orokpo Godwin under the guise of setting up a joint company but diverted the funds to personal use.

The offence according to the EFCC is contrary to section 311 of the Penal Code and punishable under section 312 of the same Code

However, the accused person  pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The defence counsel, Abel C Ozioko told the court that the EFCC had previously granted administrative bail to the accused person on self recognition.

Stressing that it was his client voluntarily submitted himself for trial yesterday, Ozioko, urged the court to grant him bail on liberal terms.

Nevertheless, the prosecution counsel Mr Sukuji Bandawa opposed the bail application on the grounds that he was just served with the bail application and would need time to respond.

Consequently, Justice Olasumbo Olarenwaju Goodluck adjourned ruling on the bail application to June 4, just as he fixed July 11 and 16 for commencement of trial.

Yahoo! is everywhere, even among the so called educated elders.
