Man Arrested For Issuing N20m Dud Cheque;

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), on Wednesday, 1st July, 2015 arraigned Raymond Duke Haruna before Justice O.C Agbaza of Federal Capital Territory High Court Jabi on an 11-count charge bordering on issuance of dud cheque and obtaining money under false pretence to the tune of N20 million.

Haruna, was alleged to have collected N20 million from Godwin Maduka as payment for a plot of land at an estate in Wuye District of Abuja belonging to Dove House Investment, which is run by him.

He however, breached the agreement as he was unable to get Maduka the plot of land for which he had been paid. Maduka, subsequently demanded for a refund.

Haruna made a refund of N4 million and issued a Diamond Bank cheque of N1 million which when presented was returned unpaid.

He pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to him.

Prosecuting counsel, S. A Ugwuegbulam, thereafter, asked the court for a trial date to present his witnesses.

Counsel to the accused, A. Maji, pleaded with the court to allow him present an oral bail application.

Justice Agbaza, however, told the defence counsel to present a formal application and adjourned the case to September 23 and 24 for trial.
