Man Remanded In Prison For Allegedly Defrauding Army General $156.2m And N80m

LAGOS NOVEMBER 28TH (NEWSRANGERS)-It is a case of alleged betrayal of trust as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned a man for reportedly defrauding his childhood friend and Army General of $156.2 million and N80 million.

It was learnt that Alhaji Yusha’u Mohammed Kebbe from Kaduna is facing charges before the state high court presided over by Justice Darius Khobo.

The victim was Kebbe’s childhood friend, an army general who appeared to have hit some questionable jackpot while on a peace keeping mission in Sudan.

According to the prosecutor, General AK was in Sudan on a United Nations military operations in 2006 when Kebbe approached him and convinced him to make some investments.

The Army officer may have trusted Kebbe as the latter allegedly told him that he was the one personally handling the project.

General AK then reportedly sent Kebbe N80,000,000 and $156,200,000 for investment.

The anti-graft agency said the Army General later learnt that instead of the investment, Kebbe diverted the monies for personal use.

The General reported his friend to the EFCC after many futile efforts to recover the monies.

The EFCC said the offence is contrary to section 311 of the penal code law of northern Nigeria 1963 and punishable under its section 312.

After pleading not guilty to the charges, Kebbe was remanded in prison.

Swem was arrested by the Port Harcourt’s zonal office of the anti-graft commission and arraigned on Wednesday, November 27.
