The Economic and Financial crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday re-arraigned Executive Secretary Delta State Scholarship Board, Peter Amromanoh, and its Accountant, Andrew Boji Nkwor. The duo were slammed with a five-count charge of conspiracy and stealing to the tune of N169 million. They were docked before Justice F N Azinge of the Delta state High Court, Asaba.

The accused persons are alleged to have paid bursary to ghost students. They pleaded not guilty to the five count charge preferred against them.

Prosecution counsel Steve Odiase asked the court for a date for hearing but A P A Ogefere, counsel to the two accused persons, asked the court to allow the duo remain on the bail granted by the former trial judge Justice Emifoniye,

Justice Azinge adjourned the case to December 8 and 9, 2015 for hearing, while allowing the accused to continue to enjoy the terms of bail earlier granted by court.

It will be recalled that the duo were first arraigned in May 2014 before Justice Emifoniye who has been transferred to another court.

One of the counts reads: “Mr Peter Amromanoh ‘M’ being the Executive Secretary of Delta State Scholarship Board sometime between 2008 to 2012 at Asaba in the Asaba Judicial Division of the High Court of Delta State, stole the sum of N77,201,961.62k (Seventy seven million, Two Hundred and One Thousand, Nine Hundred and Sixty One Naira, Sixty Two Kobo) meant for pecuniary resources property of the Delta State Scholarship Board which said sum was fraudulently converted to your own use.”
