The suspects, Innocent Chukwu and Obiageli Anachebe were brought before  an Ikeja High Court on Wednesday, September 21, and are facing a  five-count charge bordering on conspiracy, obtaining money by false pretences, stealing  and concealment of the deed. However, the suspects denied the charges.

Representing the commission, Mr Kunle Fayanju, disclosed to the court that the defendants had on two occasions, between October and December 2013, defrauded the victim, Mrs Vivian Amadike of N66 million in Lagos.

“Chukwu who goes by the alias Dr Ohamadike and Anachebe, his accomplice, on the first occasion fraudulently obtained N50 million from Amadike, a businesswoman.

“The money was received under the pretext that they will provide solutions to her spiritual problems,” he said.

He further disclosed that on or about February 14, 2014, the defendants  dishonestly received the sum of N16 million from Amadike.

“Chukwu obtained the N16 million by falsely claiming that he had the dollar equivalent of the sum for sale.”

Chukwu and Anachebe are also alleged to have dishonestly obtained and concealed the title documents to a building belonging to the victim valued at N35 million and located at No. 4, Nteje Str., New Haven, Enugu.

Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye who presided over the case ordered the defendants remanded in prison, adjourning the case to October 14 for mention.
