Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, has arraigned the General Manager of Gombe State Cooperative Savings and Loan Limited, Sani Musa, in court for allegedly defrauding a bank of N75 million.

He is appearing before Justice Umar of the Federal High Court Gombe on a three-count charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretence and issuance of dud cheques.

Musa was alleged to have in May 2009 obtained the said loan from Guaranty Trust Bank under the false pretence that it was to be used by members of the cooperative for acquisition of household items.

On receipt of the said loan, however, he disbursed only N9 million and diverted N66 million.

It is alleged in August 2009, he drew on the account name of Gombe State Cooperative Savings and Loans Limited the sum of N4,8 million in favor of GTB.

He is said to have issued a cheque of N30 million to GTB drawn on Asnib International Resources Limited account with Intercontinental Bank Plc.

All the cheques upon presentation for payment were dishonored for insufficient funds and subsequently marked dud.

He is pleading not guilty.

The trial continues.
