EFCC docks lady over N45m scam


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Monday, arraigned Ibukun  Adedayo before a Lagos High Court, Ikeja for allegedly defrauding her company’s client.

Ms. Adedayo was arraigned on a 24-count charge of stealing, forgery and uttering worth over N45 million.

Ms. Adedayo allegedly converted money entrusted to her firm, Structured Financial Group of Ventures and Trust Limited, to personal use by forging the e-mail instruction of clients.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge, prompting prosecution counsel, Takiyudeen Arabi, to ask the court to remand her in prison and give a date for the commencement of trial.

However, counsel to the accused, Olukemi Omotosho, said she had filed an application for bail and asked the court for a short adjourned date to consider the application. She also pleaded that the accused person be remanded in EFCC custody.

The presiding Judge, Habeeb Abiru, adjourned the case to October 22 for hearing of bail application and ordered that the accused be remanded in EFCC custody.
