How Jonathan’s former aide, others committed $31.4m fraud – EFCC explains

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), yesterday, told a Federal High Court in Lagos that the companies used by Mr. Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel Dudafa, a former Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs to President Jonathan, and two other persons, in an alleged $31.4m fraud, used companies without addresses.

The prosecutor for the anti-graft agency, Rotimi Oyedepo, said this while informing the court of the Commissions inability to effect service of the charge on the eighth defendant company (Globus Integrated Services Limited).

The firm is charged alongside former presidential aide, Amajuoyi Azubike Briggs and one Damola Bolodeoku.

Other companies in the charge marked as FHC/337C/16, alongside the three accused persons, are: Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited, Seagate Property Development and Investment Company Limited, Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited, Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited.

As a result of this development, Oyedepo urged the court to allow the Commission effect the service of the charge on the second accused person, who he said was the secretary to the listed companies.

The prosecutor supported his submission with section 123 paragraph B (iii) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA).

He said: “In line with section 123, paragraph B (iii) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA), in effecting service, this can be done on the secretary of the company. We have gone to the company and found out that they are not in existence.”
