EFCC Arraigns Three over Contract Scam in Ibadan [See Photo]


The Ibadan Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Tuesday June 13, 2017 arraigned Oladapo Oladejo, Olayinka Kayode Alfred and Adelabu Igbagboyemi Grace before Justice J. O. Abdulmalik of the Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State on a 3-count charge bordering on conspiracy and obtaining money under false pretence. 
 The defendants however, pleaded not guilty to all charges.
In view of their plea, prosecution counsel, Edeola Elumaro prayed the court for a trail date. However, counsel to the defendants, Babatunde Ajijola prayed the court for a short adjournment to enable them bring a formal bail application before the court.
Justice Abdulmalik thereafter ordered that the defendants be remanded in the Prison custody pending the hearing and determination of their bail application.
The case is adjourned to June 30, 2017 for trail.
The journey to the dock for the defendants began sometime in October, 2016 when a petitioner reported the syndicate comprising the defendants (and others still at large) to the Commission.
He alleged through a petition that they came to his block industry located in Ilorin, Kwara State to inform him of fencing project that will require over one million blocks which they wanted him to supply.
 The syndicate invited him to their office located at M. K. O Abiola House, Dugbe, Ibadan to finalize the contract arrangement. At that point, he was induced to pay some sums in order to facilitate the approval of the contract.
 After making several payments to different accounts domiciled in two banks (Names withheld) which allegedly belonging to the 1st and 3rd defendants (Kayode Olayinka and Adelabu Igbagboyemi Grace) and it appears no contract in sight, he then realized he had been scammed.
