Alhaji in Prison after claiming to own Abuja property, collected N30 Million (Updated: 7 months ago)


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned Alhaji Haruna Husseini before Justice A. S. Adepoju of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Wuse, Abuja.

On Monday, the Alhaji was docked on a two-count charge bordering on obtaining by false pretense and breach of trust.

He falsely presented himself as the owner of Plot No. 167 Katempe District in Abuja and sold the property.

In the EFCC charge, Husseini, in September 2013 in Abuja, fraudulently sold it to Vincent Mshelia and obtained the sum of N30,000,000.

The offense ran foul of Section 1(1)(a) and is punishable under Section 1(3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006.

In another count, Husseini, entrusted with the same property by Ibrahim Baba Chaichai, used the Certificate of Occupancy registered as No. 16692 at Page 16692 in Volume 83 of the Register of Land, to sell it off.

The offense was contrary to section 311 and punishable under Section 312 of the Panel Code Law (Cap 89 Laws of Northern Nigeria 1963).

The defendant pleaded “not guilty” when the charges were read to him.

EFCC counsel, M. I. Buba, asked for an adjournment to enable the prosecution to commence trial.

Nkechukwu Odanwu, defense counsel, informed the court of a bail application and prayed that his client is granted bail on health grounds.

Ruling, Justice Adepoju ordered the remand of Husseini in the Nigerian Correctional Centre, Kuje.

Adepoju adjourned the case until November 2, 2021, for a hearing of the bail application.
