The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Enugu Zonal Office, has secured the conviction of a businessman, Nicholas Emenike for advance fee fraud.

Emenike was arraigned on March 27, 2017 along with his company, Raso Construction Company Limited, at an Enugu State High Court, on a two-count charge of obtaining money by false pretence to the tune of N4,467,500.

EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade said his ordeal began in 2015 when he was reported to the anti-graft commission by a complainant who alleged that Emenike deceived him into a supply of rods for the execution of a multi-million naira building contract he claimed to have won.

After supplying the rods, Emenike issued a post-dated cheque, which was returned unpaid.

Investigation by the EFCC, however, revealed that Emenike was never awarded any contract, as there was no document to support his claim. Orilade added that it was further established that he sold the rods and diverted the proceeds to his personal use.

He had pleaded “not guilty” to the charges.

The prosecution team led by Ani Ikechukwu Michael opened its case by calling two witnesses and tendering nine exhibits.

Delivering judgement on January 4, 2019, Justice C.C. Ani found the accused guilty on count one bordering on obtaining by false pretence, and discharged him on count two, bordering on issuance of dud cheque, and sentenced him to seven years in prison.
