Again, EFCC Vows To Arrest Innoson Boss Over Alleged Fraud
It appears the last has not been heard on the case between Nigerian entrepreneur and auto maker, Innocent Chukwuma and anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
After a failed attempt to prosecute the Chairman of Innoson Motors Nigeria Limited over some alleged fraud, the EFCC has again threatened to resume the process.
The Commission vowed Wednesday, after Justice Olusola Williams of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos, struck out the case of fraud it instituted against Chukwuma.
The Judge struck out the case after the EFCC failed to produce Chukwuma in court to face trial.
Chukwuma and his company, Innoson Motors Nigeria Limited, were to be arraigned on a four-count charge of conspiracy to obtain by false pretences, obtaining by false pretence, stealing and forgery.
The defendants allegedly committed the offences between 2009 and July 2011 in Lagos.
The defendants were alleged to have conspired to obtain by false pretenses, containers of motorcycles, spare parts and raw materials, property of Guaranty Trust Bank, from Mitsui OSK Lines Limited, Apapa, Lagos.
They were also alleged to have fraudulently induced staff of Mitsui OSK and Maersk Line to deliver to them, via their clearing agents.
