Date set for ruling on Oluronke scam case

28 October 2015, 17:04

Lagos - The Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja has fixed December 21 for judgment in a $330 000 scam case involving a former registrar of a local court, Rosulu Idowu Oluronke.

The ex- court registrar was alleged to have collected a sum of $330 000 from a former Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant-General Ishaya Bamaiyi (retd) at the Kirikiri maximum prison, Lagos, where he was an awaiting trial inmate.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has charged the suspect in court for conspiracy and obtaining money under false pretence.

Bamaiyi had in his testimony before the court alleged that Oluronke aided a Lagos based lawyer, Fred Ajudua, in defrauding him the sum of money.

The money, according to Bamaiyi was meant to be part payment for professional fees reportedly charged by legal icon, Afe Babalola to handle his trial for attempted murder of the late publisher Alex Ibru and two others.

Bamaiyi said he met Ajudua and Alumile Adedeji (a.k.a. Ade Bendel)at Kirikiri Maximum Prison between November 2004 and June 2005.

Justice Lateef Lawal - Akapo, adjourned proceedings in the trial to allow him deliver his judgment in December.
