Court Remands Enugu Cleric In Prison Over Alleged Fraud
A Federal High Court sitting in Enugu, has remanded a cleric, Bishop Ginika Obi, in Enugu Maximum Prison, over an alleged fraud.
Obi, who is standing trial on a 82-count charge of Advance Fee Fraud, was arrested and arraigned after investigation by operatives of the Police Monitoring Unit, following petitions against him and others at large.
The prosecution team informed the court that Bishop Obi conspired with others at large to dupe victims.
The offence was alleged to have been committed in his church/office at Km 111, Enugu/Port Harcourt Expressway in Enugu South Local Government.
In his ruling, Justice A. Liman granted the accused bail at N50 million with two sureties, who must be a director in a ministry and a traditional ruler of his community.
The bishop however could not meet the bail conditions.
