Lagos - Several businesspersons and a company will later this year be arraigned before the Federal Capital Territory High Court Maitama on a 12-count charge bordering on forgery and obtaining money under false pretences to the tune of N207 billion.

Julius Ola Peters, Emeka Iloegbunam, Ijeoma David Alanza, Jonathan Wallang and Dinijocs Nigeria Limited will appear before Justice Ishaq Bello on September 15.

Ola Peters and Iloegbunam, former President and Vice President respectively of the NLNG Staff Bonny Co-operative Investment and Credit Society Limited, alongside Alanza and Dinijocs Nigeria Limited, allegedly fleeced members of some cooperatives under various guises.

The offences were allegedly committed between 2011 and 2012.

The accused persons had pleaded not guilty on May 26when they were first arraigned, while the court adjourned to June 30.

The accused persons were supposed to take fresh pleas today but the proceedings were stalled owing to the absence of the trial judge who sent words that he was involved in other engagements.

Consequently, the matter has been adjourned to September 15.
