The accused will be arraigned on Thursday on a six-count charge of conspiracy, stealing, forgery and uttering in a high court.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has charged former Commissioner for Youth and Sports in Anambra, Okey Aroh, to court over the alleged theft of N108 million.
Mr. Aroh was charged alongside Abimbola Oluwaniyi, for allegedly conniving with him to steal the amount, belonging to the United Bank for Africa, UBA, Plc, between June 2008 and July 2009.
The accused will be arraigned on Thursday on a six-count charge of conspiracy, stealing, forgery and uttering in an Ikeja High Court, presided over by Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye.
The Counsel to EFCC, Omeiza Adebola, alleged that Mr. Aroh committed the offences while he was the Manager of UBA, Oke Arin 2 Branch, Lagos.
Mr. Adebola said the ex-commissioner conspired with Ms. Oluwaniyi who was the Relationship Manager of the bank, to steal the amount.
He said the defendants forged two UBA Certificates of Deposit to facilitate the theft.
