Fraudulent land deal lands Enugu pair in court

21 November 2014, 08:03Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - Two men have been arraigned at the the Federal High Court in Enugu on a six-count charge bordering on conspiracy, forgery and obtaining by false pretence.

The suspects are Ozulu Dominic and Ogbobe Michael.

The accused persons allegedly sold a plot of land in Nsukka belonging to Professor Charles Okigbo to one Omeye Anthony, claiming that Okigbo had given the land as gift to Mr. Dominic Ozulu after serving as his caretaker for 17 years.

Ozulu allegedly brought a deed of Assignment purportedly signed by Professor Okigbo as proof of transfer of the title of the land to him. Based on this evidence, the victim made a payment of N1,5 million into  Ozulu’s account and another N150 000 as agency fee.

But when he started developing the land, Prof. Okigbo surfaced and claimed he never transferred his title to Dominic Ozulu or anybody else.

The matter was adjourned to 17th February, 2015 for hearing.
