NGO leader wanted for mutimillion-naira fraud

26 September 2014, 21:35

Lagos - A man has been declared wanted after allegedly purchasing vehicles through the issuance of dud cheques to the value of over N73 million.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared Chief Hope Rexlawson from Rivers State wanted in connection with the alleged offences.

According to a statement the commission issued on Friday, Rexlawson,  in his capacity as the National Coordinator of Rebuild Nigeria Initiative, a non-governmental organisation, allegedly issued several EcoBank and Zenith Bank cheques to Goshen Motors Limited as payment for 46 vehicles.

“The cheques totalling N73 600 000 were returned unpaid upon presentation at the Bank due to insufficient funds in the account,” EFCC stated.

The commission described Rexlawson as dark complexioned, medium height and aged 41.
EFCC added the suspect is an indigene of Buguma in Asari Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State.

His last known residential address was No. 9B Constitution Avenue, Gaduwa Estate, Gudu Abuja.

"Anybody with useful information as to his whereabouts should contact the Commission in its Enugu, Kano, Lagos, Gombe, Port Harcourt and Abuja offices," said the commission.
