Kano labour leader in court for fraud

10 June 2014, 07:38

Abuja - The Chairman of the Kano State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Yunusa Isah Danguguwa, has been arraigned before the Federal High Court in Kano on one count charge bordering on obtaining N2 million by false pretense.

According to Economic And Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Danguguwa allegedly obtained the sum from one Usman Arzika of Williams Dabo International Limited under the pretext that the NLC Kano Council had awarded a contract to the company for the supply of 250 units of ‘second hand’ cars.

The N2 million was allegedly meant for processing of other contract documents.

The commission added that investigation revealed that the council never awarded such a contract.

According to EFCC, the offence was committed in July 2012.

The accused pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to him.

Justice Fatu Riman granted him bail to the sum of N5 million and one surety in like sum. The surety must be a civil servant of not less than grade level 13 and must own a landed property in Kano.

The case was adjourned to June 30 for trial.
