Ex-Delta advisors clinch bail amnesty scam probe

21 April 2016, 18:31

Abuja - Two former aides of Kingsley Kuku, the erstwhile Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Niger Delta, have secured bail at the Federal Capital Territory High Court, Wuse, Abuja.

The former aides-Henry Nonso Ugbolue and Lawrence Pepple- are facing two separate charges bordering on criminal conspiracy, false declaration of assets and fraudulent acquisition of property to the tune of N55 million.

Kuku and Ugbolue were alleged to have conspired among themselves and awarded contracts running into millions to companies in which they had interests.

Ugbolue is the alleged sole signatory of Great & Gamaliel Alliance Limited, the company which provided integrated management of communications and stakeholders’ engagement chain for the office of the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta.

Pepple on the other hand, is director and sole signatory for KER Global Wave limited which was awarded a contract to provide Reintegration Support Services by the Office of the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta under the Presidential Amnesty Programme.

They pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Justice Kolo has granted bail to Ugbolue in the sum of N10 million and one surety in like sum. The surety must have landed property in Abuja with documents be deposited in the court.

Pepple has secured bail in the sum of N5 million and one surety in like sum. The surety who must be resident in Abuja must have landed property in the capital city with the documents deposited in the court.

The case has been adjourned to May 12.
