Man Faces EFCC Trial For Scamming N12m With Bogus Inheritance In Maiduguri

On Monday, July 3, the Borno State High Court in Maiduguri heard the case of Isyaku Ibrahim, who was charged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for defrauding people of N12m by claiming to have an inheritance.

On Wednesday, the EFCC shared this information via a post on Twitter.

Ibrahim faced a revised charge of one count of unlawfully taking N12,000,000.

The charge read, “That you, Ishiyaku Ibrahim, sometime between 2014 and 2019 at Jajere Baga Road, Maiduguri, Borno State within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court being entrusted with dominion over certain properties belonging to Muhammad Ishiyaku (now deceased) to wit: (1) three houses, (2) two fenced lands one of which have seven shops, (3) two bread factories, (4) One open land, (5) two tanker trucks and (6) one big installed generator valued in the sum of N12,000,000.00 (Twelve Million Naira), criminally misappropriated the said amount for your personal use, to the detriment of the family members of the deceased and therefore committed an offence contrary to and punishable under sections 308 and 309 of the Penal Code Law of Borno State (Cap. 102 Vol. 3 of 1994) respectively.”

Ibrahim pleaded “not guilty” to the charges.

Nonetheless, the court was requested by S.O Saka, the counsel for EFCC prosecution, to detain the accused and set a date for the hearing.
