Yahoo Yahoo Man Arrested and Thrown In Jail for Defrauding Army General off N180million (Photo)
The EFCC, on October 8, 2018 arraigned one Mohammed Sanni Zubair, before Justice Ijeoma L. Ojukwu of the Federal High Court, sitting in Maitama, Abuja, on a 4-count charge of fraud.
Zubair, a suspected serial fraudster, was alleged to be a member of a syndicate, who specialized in defrauding people.
The long arm of the law caught Zubair when the children of one Major General Geoffrey Ejiga (retd) petitioned the EFCC alleging that a syndicate of fraudsters took advantage of their father’s old age to defraud him of over N180million.
A check on Zubair’s profile showed that he had previously been arrested by the operatives of the EFCC sometime in 2016 for a fraud related offence, which he confessed to, saying he acted under the instruction of one Johnson Abiodun, whose real name was Nuhu Kasim.
In the course of investigation, Kasim was arrested in Kano, and it was discovered that the information given by the defendant against him, was completely false. Hence, this charge.
The defendant pleaded not guilty to the counts preferred against him.
Justice Ojukwu, thereafter, adjourned to October 26, 30 and 31 for hearing on motion for bail and trial.
The court also ordered that the defendant should continue with the administrative bail earlier granted him by the Commission.
