EFCC Nabs Businesswoman For Fraud And Issuance Of N7.3M Dud Cheque (Photo)The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday June 27 arraigned one Helen Ogunniwa alongside her company, Den-Moyek Nigeria Enterprise, before Justice 0. A. Taiwo of the Lagos State High Court Igbosere on a two-count charge bordering on Obtaining Money by False Pretence and Issuance of Dishonored Cheque to the tune of N7, 369,600m (Seven Million Three Hundred and Sixty Nine Thousand, Six Hundred Naira).
The complainant, Alhaja Jumoke Yusuf, supplied a truck load of Vegetable Oil to the defendant to supply another company worth of N7, 376,650. Out of this, she only made payment of N800, 000.00 leaving balance N6, 576, 650.00 which she refused to pay. Consequently, the accused person allegedly issued a cheque in favour of the complainant.
However, when the complainant presented the cheque, it was dishonored due to insufficient funds in her account.
