Pastor Arraigned For N22.4M Fraud, As Court Jails Another Fraudster For 7 Years

The EFCC, has arraigned Pastor Nimi West (pictured right) and his company, Nimak & Company Nigeria Limited before Justice U.N. Agumoh of the Federal High Court Port Harcourt, Rivers State on a four- count charge of obtaining money under false pretense to the tune of N22.4m.

West is alleged to have received the said amount from one Emmanuel Dike at different times in 2013 for payment of a bungalow. However, the complainant later discovered that the property had been sold to another person while his efforts to recover his money did not succeed.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge when read to him and was granted bail in the sum of N1m and two sureties in like sum. Also, Justice Agumoh convicted and sentenced one Chief Felix Amadi to 7 years imprisonment on a one-count charge bordering on obtaining money under false pretence brought against him by EFCC.

The convict was first arraigned on March 31, 2014 and he pleaded not guilty and the matter went into full trial. He was specifically tried for offering a plot of land for sale without granting the buyer possession of the land.

He sold the landed property for a sum of N17.6m. Although in the course of his trial, he restituted the entire sum to the buyer of the land, nonetheless, Justice Agumoh still found him guilty of the charge preferred against him and sentenced him to 7 years imprisonment without an option of fine.eex
