Nigerian Fraudster Fred Ajudua Remanded In Prison

Fred Ajudua
By SaharaReporters, New York

A Lagos State High Court judge today remanded high profile fraud suspect, Fred Ajudua, in prison custody until June 24 2013.

Justice Olubunmi Oyewole ordered that Mr. Ajudua remain jail pending the commencement of his trial for defrauding two Dutch businessmen, Remy Cina and Pierre Vijgen, of $1.69 million between July 1999 and September 2000.

Mr. Ajudua appeared in court this morning after several adjournments by his lawyers in the alleged fraudulent deal, where Mr. Ajudua was accused of impersonating the Auditor-General of Nigeria, Isa Audu.

Three years after his 2003 arraignment, Mr. Ajudua was granted bail on medical grounds in March 2006. He had told the court afterwards that he was receiving treatment at Grant Medical Foundation, Pane, India in October 2006. Since then, he has failed to make any court appearance.

At every court session since his “medical” bail was approved; Mr.  Ajudua had submitted a letter of  medical excuse signed by Dr. M.O. Mabayoje of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH). Besides, his defense counsel, Olalekan Ojo, became notorious for appearing in court to make incessant requests for adjournments. “There is no doubt that Chief Ajudua and his lawyer want to use the tactics of endless adjournments to make sure that the case would fizzle out over time,” said a source close to the prosecutors.

On Monday May 22nd, however, Justice Oyewole, who was presiding over the case, rejected further requests for adjournment. He fixed today, June 11 2013 for resumption of trial.

Although Mr. Ajudua’s lawyer had told the court severally that his client was undergoing treatment for renal artery stenosis he appeared today in court looking healthy.

 Also, Ajudua lawyers today pleaded to the judge to let their client be remanded at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission detention facility, but the judge rejected the request and ordered that Mr. Ajudua be remanded at a public prison until the next adjourned date-June 24th 2013.

 Ajudua,  a lawyer by training is widely known as one of the originators of the Nigerian popular scam " 419".

Who dey no footstep of thief on the rock?

Could you please explain to Nigerians how you get to know these long list of names as fraudstars, if you have not been part of them?

you are an absolute fool and

you are an absolute fool and you are part of the reason why that country can never and will never prosper. What does it matter which part of the country a fraudster comes from. a fraudster is a fraudster period, wether yoruba ibo or hausa. People like you are the ignorant ones that will protect a fraudster because he comes from your part of the world, your ignorance knows no bounds.MUMU

"Accused Fruadster"

The caption of this story is totally misleading. To call somebody a "fraudster" before he/she is convicted of any crime is a "fraud" in itself. It should have read "accused fraudster".

even America was stolen land

The saddest part of all these is whenever these guys duped Nigerians you don't see them in court. But when they duped oyinbo its all over the news. When was the last time any American Indian take oyinbo to court for stealing his land ?

Nigerian fraudster Fred Ajudua remanded in prison

In Nigeria, the Hausa/Muslims are terrorists. The Ibo/Christians are fraudsters. The Yorubas are for sale to the highest bidders, and you want progress in Nigeria.

Who is a fraud star?

Who is a fraudster? Where are these fraudsters frm Yoruba land- West of Nigeria, who defrauded US companies & individuals via credit card fraud? No update? Is it bcos its not Ibori, Odili or alams?Just look at the list:

1. Bolaji Ola, 30
2. Olamide Otti,27
3. Akintunde Adeyemi,28
4. Adegbola Adedeji,31
5. Oluwaseun Jato,23
6. Oluwasola Diji,31
7. Oladapo Araromi,26
8. Oluwaseun Adekoya,25
9. Henry Abdul,25 (From Illorin)
10.Babatunde Oyefeso,27
11. Idris Soyemi,25
12. Ibrahim Akaba,23
13. Olutoye Babatunde,22
14. Olukayode Adeosun,30
15. Olushola Ayeni,31
16. Oladayo Araromi,26
17. Olujimi Williams,24

How come they all come from one nation in continent Nigeria? Until recently we did not know that useless Bola Ige was a bribe taker. Idiots.

FRED ADJUDUA IS OUR HERO

CHIEF FRED ADJUDUA IS OUR HERO; MAKE JUDGE OYEWOLE LEAVE AM ALONE TO CONTINUE HIM BUSINESS, ABEG!

The presumption of innocence is taking a beating here,

HOME AT LAST! THE FOUNDING FATHER OF 419 IN NIGERIA.

His chick has finally come to roost. Heading straight for the habitat created by the works of his hands. Unless he repents, this is probably his ultimate destination. Regardless of whom he defrauded, fraud is fraud. These are the one bringing Nigeria down, may their clan deplete one by one.

OGBENI NAIJA-Please read the story again

The story here is that Fred impersonated the Auditor General! What is the business they want to do with the Auditor General? Was the money paid to the Federation Account? How many time do they visit the Office of the Auditor General Office? The transaction took place at where? What is these foreigner business name in Nigeria and where is their office?
Why should anybody call Fred a fraudster? Has he ever been convicted of a fraud? Can Sahara Reporter call call Farouk Lawal a fraudster?

Let's wait and see/hear.

Let's wait and see/hear.

A Nation of Thieves

Nigeria is a nation of thieves. We have those like Ajudua, Ade Bendel, etc who have towed the lined of stealing from others, albeit outsiders through con (419) and laid a good foundation for current day "yahoo boys" type scam. We also have those like Babangida, Abacha, Obasanjo, David Mark, Patience Jonathan, Victor Attah, Patricia Eteh, Ikuforiji, etc who have stolen from the inside through their position of authority and have laid the foundation for current day you, me, yes us......who aspire for our own opportunity to steal as well. I kid you not, take it or leave it, we are all thieves.

John Okafor is not serious.

Ohakim dealt with Ikenna Samuelson and other human right activist who tried to expose his kleptocracy. I NO GO FORGET AT ALL!

Innocent until proven guilty

When you start getting these types of headlines..."Nigerian Fraudster Fred Ajudua Remanded In Prison", you know there is a very serious problem in journalism. But when "honest" Nigerians starts commenting on such articles, that's bye bye to common sense. Nigerians have this crude mentality about them. It's that same mentality that got 4 young undergraduates of Uniport slaughtered in broad daylight in the most despicable, barbaric & grotesque manner. Oh, but I digress. Now an accused man has been remanded in prison pending the final judgement by the court. So why would they start calling him 'a Nigerian fraudster' while the case against the man is still in court? But to think they are reporting this all the way from New York, one would be surprised at the haste with which they have already pronounced him guilty from over there. What's with the "innocent until proven guilty" and all that law terminologies they stuff down our throat?

IN OUR LEGAL SYSTEM A PERSON

IN OUR LEGAL SYSTEM A PERSON IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. THE NIGERIA PRESS MUST BE VERY CAREFUL IN THEIR REPORTING. AJUDUA NOW IN LAW IS AN ALLEDGED FRAUDSTER AND NOT A FRAUDSTER AS HE HAS NOT BEEN CONVICTED. IF EVENTUALLY HE IS FOUND NOT GUILTY, THE PRESS WILL PAY A VERY GREAT PRICE FOR THEIR RUSHING TO JUDGEMENT

NO AJUDUA PICTURE AVAILABLE!

You can never get a clear picture of Ajudua's face anywhere not even on world wide web (internet)!

@Tunde how dared you called Fred Ajudua a criminal, fraudster & an international disgrace a gentle man,He has been part. With your comment, it is clear that you are one of his 419 cadets.

ALL HAILS TO FRED AJUDUA

I think Fred is a Genius for co-investing "419" which today has help to reduce many atrocities committed by unemployed Nigerian Graduates. I wonder what Nigeria would have turned into if there were no exits like "419" which many unemployed graduates today have embraced as "Self Employed".

Gbosa!! to Fred.
