By Sadiq Aminu                                                         The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Monday, January 29, 2024 arraigned a businessman, James Bodisowei, before Justice C. A. Obiozor of the Federal High Court sitting in Benin City, Edo State.

Bodisowei was arraigned on a 4-count charge by the Benin Zonal command of the Commission for allegedly obtaining the sum of N10,000,000 from one Amah Mathias under false pretence.
He is alleged to have defrauded the victim under the pretence of supplying him with 1,000,000 liters of automated gas oil AGO.

One of the counts read: That You JAMES BODISOWEI (M) on or about the 18th day of November, 2021 in Benin City, Edo State within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court with intent to defraud did obtain the sum of N5,000.000.00 from Amah Nchekwube Mathias via your bank account number: 0074094…. domiciled in Sterling Bank under the false pretence that same was part-payment for the purchase and/or supply of 500,000 liters of Automated Gas Oil (AGO) which pretense you knew is false and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 1(1) (a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006 and punishable under Section 1(3) of the same Act.

Upon arraignment, the defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge prompting the prosecution counsel, Francis Jirbo to pray the court to fix a date for the commencement of trial and to remand the defendant at the Correctional Service facilities.
Defence counsel Gloria Edaghese told the court that she has filed an application for bail for the defendant.
After hearing the submission of both counsels, Justice Obiozor adjourned the case till May 2, 2024 for commencement of trial while the defendant remanded at the Correctional Services pending the hearing of the bail application slated for 20th February, this year.
