$242m Scam: Court Demands Nwude's Medical Report


An Ikeja High Court judge, Justice Olubunmi Oyewole, yesterday told officials of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to obtain a medical report

An Ikeja High Court judge, Justice Olubunmi Oyewole, yesterday told officials of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to obtain a medical report showing Chief Emmanuel Nwude's health status from the National Hospital, Abuja, where he is currently undergoing treatment for an undisclosed ailment, in a bid to determine commencement of trial in a $242 million Advance Fee Fraud a.k.a. 419.

Justice Oyewole made the call yesterday when trial in the matter could not continue, as a result of Nwude's absence, due to his inability to return from Abuja to stand trial.

Nwude is standing trial in the four-month old matter alongside Mrs Amaka Anajemba, (2nd accused) and Mr Nzeribe Edeh Okoli, in a de novo trial, which began on October 5.

Also, Chief Chris Uche, SAN, Anajemba's counsel, used Nwude's absence to apply orally for limited bail for his client, in view of the delay in the trial's conclusion, a move resisted by Mr Rotimi Jacobs, EFCC Counsel in the matter.

Anajemba application for bail last year was refused, and he went to Court of Appeal to appeal against the ruling.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
