Lagos - An oil industry executive, Abubakar Shuaib Dogara, has been arraigned at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja for allegedly swindling an American $40 000 in a bogus transaction.

The Managing Director of Dogab Oil Limited has been arraigned before Justice Keziah Nwamaka Ogbonnaya on a two- count charge of forgery, fraud, diversion of funds and obtaining money by false pretence.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is prosecuting the accused for allegedly reneging on a bogus contract to supply a cargo of crude oil to the complainant, James Rodney Anella.

Anella, a Managing Member, Kailan LLC, Florida, USA, had allegedly paid the sum of $40 000 to the suspect for re-assignment of the cargo from Dogara’s name to his.

However, contrary to the agreement, the accused allegedly gave the complainant some re-assignment documents that did not bear his name on the Alloyds Register.

The accused was also said to have requested for another sum of $220 000 but the complainant kicked when he suspected a foul play.

Justice Ogbonnaya ordered that the accused be remanded in Kuje Prison.

The matter has been adjourned to Friday next week for hearing.
