EFCC arraigns man for forging Okonjo-Iweala's recommendation letter

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned one Obiejogo Raymond Azukabefore Justice Muawiyah Baba Idris of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory sitting in Gwagwalada, Abuja on a six-count charge bordering on forgery.
The spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaaaren, said, “Obiejigo, a Higher National Diploma holder from Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Anambra allegedly forged a reference letter purportedly from the minister of finance, Dr. (Mrs) Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, alongside his curriculum vitae, requesting for employment into the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC); Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) and Nigerian Security Printing and Minting (NSPM) company.”          
He said the accused pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to him, adding that in view of his plea, the lawyer to the EFCC, Halidu Mohammed, urged the court to fix a date to commence trial and also to remand the accused in prison custody.
“However, the defence counsel, J. E Chukwuemeka, through a formal application, asked the court to admit the accused to bail but his application was opposed by Mohammed who asked the court for time to respond.
“Justice Idris adjourned the case to June 2, 2015 for hearing of the bail application and commencement of trial and ordered the accused to be remanded in Kuje Prison custody”, he added.
