University Staff Docked For N11.4M Fraud

The Uyo Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Thursday, February 18, 2021, arraigned one Andrew Eigbokhaebholo, a staff of the University of Calabar, before Justice S. M Shuaibu of the Federal High Court sitting in Calabar, Cross River State.

 He was arraigned alongside his company, Panandy Oil and Gas Nigeria Limited on one count charge bordering on obtaining by false pretence to the tune of N11,470,000. 00 (eleven million, four hundred and seventy thousand naira) only.

 The defendant who claims to be a travel agent allegedly obtained the sum from a complainant on the pretext of helping to secure a United States of America Visa, accommodation and other logistics for his wife, who had planned to travel to the US to have her baby. 

 The petitioner swayed by the knowledge that the defendant’s children were US citizens, borrowed the said sum and paid the defendant only to be denied visa at the US Embassy.
