N9 million scam: Court remands Polish woman in EFCC custody

14 November 2013, 19:37

Abuja- Justice Abubakar Umar of an FCT High Court on Thursday ordered that a Polish woman, Dora Gilmaska be remanded in EFCC custody till November 26.

The judge gave the order after he withdrew the bail he granted Gilmaska because she failed on two occasions to appear in court for her trial.

"I remember that on September 26 the EFCC applied for the bench warrant because the accused could not be located.  I issued a bench warrant for her arrest,’' he said.

The judge then ordered the accused counsel to file a written application, stating reasons why the court should admit her to bail again.

"The accused is hereby remanded in EFCC custody pending hearing of the application by the accused counsel," Umar said, and adjourned the case to Nov. 26 for hearing.

Earlier, the accused counsel, Justin Okoli, who is holding the brief of his Principal counsel, Selekowei Larry (SAN), apologised for Larry’s absence.

The EFCC is prosecuting Gilmaska, the Executive Officer of Icon Media and Marketing Agency Ltd, for allegedly forging and issuing a dud cheque of N 9 million to one Tayo Olugbemi in 2012.
