A Federal High Court in Port Harcourt has remanded a former chief accountant, Chinedu Akandu, and four others over alleged Two Hundred and Fifteen (N215,000,000) Million Naira fraud.
The suspects were remanded on Friday after being arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
In a statement released on its official Twitter on Friday, the anti-graft agency said Akandu and his company, JCJ Global Services, were found guilty of the allegations against them by Justice P. I. Ajoku.
Four former Megastar Technical and Construction Company Limited employees, Andrew Odibenua, Calistus Madu, Abiola Allison and Okpeva Elija, were also accused of conspiracy, money laundering and obtaining by false pretence.
The statement noted that the defendants were arraigned by the Port Harcourt Zonal Command of the EFCC on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, on a 14-count charge bordering on conspiracy, money laundering and obtaining by false pretence.
