FRAUD: EFCC DRAGS CHUKWUMA, INNOSON MOTORS BOSS TO LAGOS HIGH COURT

The anti-graft agency, EFCC, has dragged Innoson Motors and its embattled chairman, Innocent Chukwuma before a Lagos High court, Ikeja Division dangling a four-count charge .

The four-count included attempt to obtain under false pretense, obtaining under false pretense, theft and forgery of shipping and financial documents.

All the alleged offences contravene several extant criminal statutes in Lagos State and are punishable there, court filing shows.

The EFCC listed 10 witnesses who would support its case before the court.

It is not immediately clear if a judge has been assigned to hear the case or when proceedings would commence.

Mr. Chukwuma was arrested by the EFCC at his residence in Enugu on Tuesday morning. He was then transported to Lagos where he was granted bail on Wednesday night.

The businessman has been locked in a long drawn legal battle with GTBank over alleged arbitrary deductions in his bank account.

The bank accused him of forging shipping documents to obtain under financial gratification for himself and his company.
