Man Arraigned In Court For Falsely Accusing Banker Of Withdrawing N7.2m From His Account


A fake whistleblower, Abdullahi Tijjani, was today Friday October
18th, arraigned before Justice O.A. Egwuatu on a one-count of deceiving
the Commission with false information.

A statement from the antigraft agency says Tijjani allegedly misled
operatives of the commission by alleging falsely that a staff of Yankura
Branch of EcoBank Plc, unlawfully withdrew the sum of N7,200,000 (Seven
Million, Two Hundred Thousand Naira) only from his corporate bank
account.

The charge reads that “You Abdullahi Tijjani on or about
15th March, 2019 in Kano within the jurisdiction of this honourable
court, with intent to defraud, misled the officers of the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission in the course of the exercise of their
official duty, by giving false information that a staff of Yankura
Branch of EcoBank Plc unlawfully withdrew the sum of Seven Million, Two
Hundred Thousand Naira, only from your account with the bank with
account name Bawahala Da Yardar Allah Investment Limited and account
number 5852011911, which information you knew to be false and thereby
committed an offence contrary to Section 39(2)(a) of the EFCC
Establishment Act, 2004 and punishable under Section 39(2)(b) of the
same Act.”

Tijjani however pleaded not guilty to the charge, prompting
prosecution counsel, Sadiq Hussein to ask the court for a trial date,
while the defence counsel moved an application for his bail.

Justice Egwuatu granted the defendant bail in the sum of N1million
and two sureties in like sum and adjourned the matter till November
19th 2019 for commencement of hearing.
