He knew the marriage was about to hit the rocks but he was too greedy to walk away empty handed. So he did it.

Nduka Nwaneri was said to have conspired with others to forge the survey plan and other documents of a 2-storey building belonging to his wife, Mary and later sold the property and converted the money to personal use.

Bounce News gathered that Nwaneri’s wife had bought the land located at 44 Akintola Street, Ketu in 1994, where she erected the two-storey building.

Being a faithful wife, she handed over all the documents relating to the house to her husband for safe keep.

Sources claim Nwaneri and another lady identified as Onyemaechi conspired and forged the survey plan of the property and sold the house.

Mary challenged the supposedly buyer of the property who presented the survey plan showing that the house belong to her husband, Nwaneri.

Mary reported the matter at the Ketu police station and her husband and the buyer were arrested.

During the investigation, the police discovered that the survey plan was forged and the house actually belongs to Mary.

Bounce News gathered that the house was sold for N27 million. Proceeds of the house sale were never paid to Mary.

The suspects were charged to court on Wednesday with the alleged offence under the Criminal Code.

Nwaneri and the buyer were charged before an Ikeja Magistrates’ court with conspiracy and forgery.

They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs B.O. Osunsami granted them bail in the sum of N300,000 with two sureties each.

The matter was adjourned till 1 June 2017.
