Seun Egbegbe’s Fraud Case :Judge Orders Arrest Of 'Police Officer' Listed As Witness
The trial judge in the case, Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo, said on Thursday that Abubakar must be produced before her on October 11 to continue his testimony.
According to Punch, the judge had earlier issued a bench warrant against Abubakar, ordering that he must be in court on Thursday.
The police officer, however, failed to appear, to the judge’s displeasure.
The police prosecutor, Innocent Anyigor, told the judge that Abubakar had gone out of jurisdiction, adding that all his efforts to bring him to court on Thursday failed.
Justice Oguntoyinbo berated the police prosecutor for the poor handling of the case, which had been filed before her since February.
She said the witness must be brought before her on October 11.
She directed the fifth defendant to get a counsel before the next adjourned date.
The police had first arraigned Egbegbe alongside one Oyekan Ayomide in February after they were accused of swindling no fewer than 30 Bureau De Change operators in Lagos of various sums both in local and foreign currencies between 2015 and 2017.
The police alleged that they defrauded the BDC operators mostly by falsely representing to the victims that they had foreign currencies to sell to or buy from the BDC operators.
Those arraigned alongside Egbegbe and Ayomide were Lawal Kareem, Olalekan Yusuf and Muyideen Shoyombo.
