A former driver, Chinwoke Onyedinazu has been remanded in prison custody for defrauding his former boss, Paul Henderson to the tune of £182,064.99.

According to a report by SaharaReporters, Onyedinazu was remanded in prison pending the adjourned trial date, October 27, 2016.

Onyedinazu was reportedly arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, before Justice M. A. Liman of the Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, for duping his former boss, who is also a Briton.

He was docked on a nine-count charge bordering on obtaining by false pretense and risks bagging a jail term.

It was reported that Onyedinazu had proposed a fish farming business to the Henderson, while he worked under him in Nigeria and which he accepted.

Following Henderson's relocation back to Britain, he wired the sum of 182,064.99 Pounds (equivalent of N60,000,000 at that time) to Onyedinazu, who neither pursued the business nor invested in another joint business.
