EFCC Press Release - EFCC Arraigns Binta Kuraye Over N17.5m Fraud

By Wilson Uwujaren, Ag. Head, Media & Publicity

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, today January 31, 2013 arraigned Hajiya Binta Kuraye and the Umita Construction Company before Justice Kekemeke U. Peter of the Federal Capital Territory High Court, Apo, Abuja on a two count charge of issuing dud cheques with intent to defraud.

The accused person allegedly issued two dud Cheques worth  N17, 500.000 (Seventeen million, Five Hundred Thousand Naira Only) to one Claire Uzoamaka Arinze in March, 2012.

One of the charges reads: “That you Hajiya Binta Kuraye and Umita Construction and Supply Company Limited on or about the 22nd of March 2012 in Abuja within the Jurisdiction of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory with intent to defraud did issue a GTB Bank Cheque No. 00000090 dated the 22nd March 2012 for the sum of N9, 000,000 to one Claire Uzoamaka Arinze which cheque on presentation was dishonoured for lack of sufficient funds in the account and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 1 (1) (b) of Dishonoured Cheques (offences) Act Cap D11 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004 punishable under Section 1 (1)(i) of the same Act”.

She pleaded not guilty to the charge, prompting the prosecution counsel, Marylyn Eimonye, to ask for a date for trial, while accused is remanded to prison custody.

However, defence counsel, Innocent Agada prayed the court to admit his client to bail but the application was opposed by the prosecution counsel who informed the court that the accused had earlier jumped the administrative bail granted her by the Commission.  

The judge ordered that the accused be remanded in Kuje prison and adjourned to February 5, 2013 for ruling on the bail application.

Wallahi. I thought Turai was the only thieving Hajia, not knowing that rogue Hajias are a dime and dozen in Islamic Arewa. As a true Muslim is she going to volunteer herself for amputation?

Hajiya Binta Kuraye Was One Of Prophet Muhammad's 60 Wives

Hajiya Binta Kuraye was married to prophet muhammad during her pilgrim to Mecca. The prophet muhammad made love to her in the black grave castle of the prophet. A lot of virgin girls who went to haji got kidnapped when they walked around the devil black stone grave housing prophet muhammad. Some of the muslim women who went on pilgrim to Mecca sighted IBB's late wife Maryam in the prophet muhammad's den. The late Sheik Gumi, Abacha, Osama Bin Ladden were sighted in the grave enjoying their share of 72 virgins. IBB, Adamu Ciroma, Emir Ado Bayero are next on the line to be prophet muhammad's guests. These guys are awaiting the Boko Haram to gun them down so that they would meet the requirements of entry the paradise of hell prepared for them by prophet muhammad.

Corruption Cleansing Should Be From Head To Toe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EFCC, you guys have been deceiving Nigerians for too long. In any serious society, the cleansing of CORRUPTION is done from head to toe and NOT FROM TOE TO??????????????

Why is everything in shambles in the land?
Why cann't EFCC go after the IBB, Atiku, OBJ, Faruk, Otedola, the Senators and many other names too many to mention here.
Nigeria, a country that manufactures rogues, 419ers, kick-back specialist, looters, contract inflators etc etc. SHAME SHAME and SHAME to the PEOPLE who only complained but too AFRAID to take on their THEIVING LEADERS head-on. Keep waiting for GOD.

A' beg, pay your 50 Naira fine and go home

The guy that stole billions of Naira was fined 250,000 Naira.

This chic should quickly pull out 50 Naira from her Louis Vuitton bag and pay the judge, O'jare !

If the Nigerian justice system does not have the balls to punish politicians, the least they can do is to publish on the internet, in exquite detail, the evidence they have against these criminals.

From all thge roll call of

From all thge roll call of theives in Nigeria, we now know which tribes loves money than others Before they used they say that one particular tribe loves money than other but we now know better. Just submit the names of those that have stoled Nigeria Blind, you will rethink. Just punlish the ranking. The level of stealing have got to another dimention. Before it used to be the police protecting them. Now the Judiciary have taking over. The slogan now is steal as much as you can and we will go to court with all the techinicalities and at worst we use plea bargaining to get you out of the hook while poor people go to jail in Nigeria in every blesses day. Oh my country ???????

When will EFCC go after the mega thieves?????

I don't and would never condone any form of theft or fraud. Every criminal should face the law. But when will EFCC go after the people that rape and continue raping our common wealth? EFCC is quick to release press releases as these, perhaps trying to show they are "working". But when will they hunt and punnish those responsible for our no light, no water, no roads, no......many other essentials of nationhood????? Enough of this "motion without movement" please.

APPLY SHARIAH.

A PROSTITUTE AND ATHIEF ARE KITH AND KIN. oF WHAT USE IS AVEILTO THIS PROSTITUTE? FATWAH KAWAI! ARNA SHEGEAI KAWAI!

SADDENING BUT THIS IS NIGERIA, A NIGHTMARE.

OUR FATHERS ARE THIEVES, OUR MOTHERS STEAL FOR FUN, OUR CHILDREN ARE WORSE CROOKS. WHERE DO WE TURN? NIGERAI IS A PIECE OF UNENDING BAD NEWS.

Papa Deceive Pikin (PDP)

Someone with intention to defraud a mere 17.6million is not granted bail while someone who took part in stealing 27.2Billion has been set free! Please EFCC leave the rats alone and pursue the big cats! They are the real problem. You guys are lazy! You are not doing anything!
