Abuja - Gunmen have abducted an alleged serial fraudster and suspect of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the precincts of the High Court in Lagos.
According to a statement by the commission, the suspect, Princewill Arinze Nwobodo (alias Aboki J. Brown) was abducted by the four gunmen within the court in Igbosere where he was billed for an arraignment before Justice Aishat Opesanwo on a four count charge bordering on obtaining $ 92 000 under false pretence.
“Nwobodo had been arraigned in two separate courts in Lagos for fraudulent dealings. In one of the courts, Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, he was docked on October 25th, 2013 before Justice Saliu Seidu on a fifteen count charge bordering on forgery and obtaining under false pretence,” the commission stated.
EFCC said he had pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail but his inability to meet the bail conditions had resulted in him remaining in prison.
In the second case, he was arraigned on November 20, 2013 before Justice Aishat Opesanwo alongside Katchy Okoye and Matthew Usong on a twelve-count charge bordering on conspiracy and obtaining money under false pretence.
The suspect was granted bail but could not meet the bail conditions resulting in their remand in prison custody.
Nwobodo was remanded in the prison custody and he came to court from Ikoyi Prison, Lagos.
He was abducted by the gunmen from the prison warders who brought him to court.
