N10bn fraud: Police arraign man for forging late father’s signature


Paul Ozigbo, a businessman, has been charged in the Federal High Court in Abuja with allegedly faking his late father’s signature in order to replace the directors of Ozigbu Engineering Nigeria Limited.

The Nigeria Police Force also charged Ozigbo with collaborating with individuals at large to obtain money worth N10.4 billion, falsifying documents from the Corporate Affairs Commission, and transferring family property to personal use in the FHC/ABJ/CR/239/2020 suit.

Ozigbo, on the other hand, has pleaded not guilty to all allegations.

Justice Okon Abang had already arraigned the defendant. However, when Justice Abang was transferred to another judicial division of the court, the case was dismissed.
Hope Ejiofor, Ozigbo’s lawyer, asked the court to grant his client the same bail terms that had been granted and perfected before Justice Abang.

I. Nwandike, the prosecutor’s counsel, did not raise any objections to the application.

The case was postponed until October 18 for a trial.
